Inward investment

Our international inward investment experts can provide you with everything you need to successfully manage and run a business in the UK.

Anyone setting up a business in the UK or in mainland Europe will sooner or later need a helping hand.

At HW Fisher, we’ve been helping individuals and companies with inward investment in the UK for nearly 80 years.

Britain has long been one of the easiest European countries in which to set up and run a business.

This enviable reputation has led many overseas companies to establish a UK subsidiary or branch as a base from which to develop their share of both the UK and European markets.

Strategic partners

With this in mind, we offer a range of expertise and services to assist you through the challenges of starting a business in what may seem a strange and foreign land. Our international inward investment experts are familiar with the issues facing a new business, and are particularly skilled in assisting overseas investors to anticipate and overcome any difficulties they may face.

Our goal is to become strategic partners who you can count on to help you navigate successfully any issues faced by your business and products.
