Information requested

The total amount of grant funding for inward investment that Scottish Enterprise has given businesses locating in Glasgow's International Financial Services District since IFSD Glasgow was launched in 2001 to present, specifically via the Regional Selective Assistance grant. If IFSD specific is not possible, just include any inward investment to Glasgow as a whole, as defined by the council boundaries. 


We were able to identify RSA grants offered for inward investment from 2001 specific to the Glasgow City area. Since 2001, 97 awards resulted in a total of £80,152,000 being paid to date.

Please see the attached spreadsheet at Appendix A detailing these RSA grant payments.

Please note the Scottish Enterprise RSA scheme was introduced in 2009. Prior to this it was a matter for the Scottish Executive.
