Capital 500: London Quarterly Economic Survey

The Capital 500: Quarterly Economic Survey (QES) is London's biggest and most representative business survey.

For over a decade LCCI has conducted a QES of London businesses to gauge business performance and general confidence levels across the capital. This is part of the biggest and longest running national private business survey, conducted by regional chambers of commerce across the UK every quarter.

About the Capital 500: QES

Since 2014 we have partnered with leading polling agency Savanta ComRes to poll over 500 London businesses. The data is weighted to be representative of all London businesses by company size and broad industry sector. The survey provides crucial insight into what’s happening in London's business community.

The survey results are fed into HM Treasury, the Mayor of London, the Bank of England and many other influential policymakers.
