The UK's decision to leave the EU has already cost it a 19% fall in Foreign Direct Investment, FDI, according to research group UK Trade Policy Observatory.
UKTPO says the fall between 2016 and 2017 is the longest continuous decline since records began.
Brexit has cost the UK its status as the largest recipient of FDI in Europe too; Germany has usurped it.
