The UK ranks average on the finance component. Its international investment agreements are the best among all CDI countries, considering public policy goals of its investment partners and including a sustainable development approach. Regarding its institutional commitments, it also has a good score. The UK could strengthen its performance as an open and transparent investor by a more comprehensive commitment to the OECD guidelines on multinational companies. Regarding financial secrecy, the UK scores low as it allows secrecy within its sphere of influence (that is, Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies). It could still significantly improve Its corporate transparency regulations, requiring that company ownership details are publicly available online. Furthermore, the UK could work on improving in its tax and financial regulations, making them more efficient for investment in development.
