Regional business insights, hot off the press.

Our partnership

At Barclays Corporate Banking we have our feet on the ground, with local relationship teams across the UK. These teams and their specialist knowledge can help to support clients thrive in their community. To further deepen our insight, we’ve partnered with FT Longitude - the research arm of the Financial Times - to develop a new suite of thought leadership content. By surveying 352 senior UK business leaders with an equal representation across all UK regions, the research investigates how companies need to hold two perspectives:

1. The Big Picture: how are they capitalising on global, macro trends while managing the associated risks
2. Up Close: their deep connection and relationship with their local market.

Have a read of our seven new articles, each highlighting regional nuances in business strategies across the UK. Articles include how businesses are sourcing local talent, and the importance of both partnerships and the customer voice when expanding.


Regional commitment
We're committed to help you see the big picture, whilst staying in the detail

We are committed to taking the time to understand the big picture of your business. We understand that having a strong regional presence is just as important to some businesses as having plans to expand – whether nationally or globally.
