Copenhagen no. 4 most dynamic city in Europe
16 March 2015
Copenhagen is Europe’s fourth most dynamic city praised for its livability and open and liquid market, according to the City Momentum Index 2015.
The combined forces of urbanisation, globalisation and technology are recasting the commercial geography of real estate – offering new opportunities and challenges in a fast-changing global hierarchy of cities.
The world’s most competitive cities are those that are quick to adapt to each new cycle of global change and that are building forward momentum.

About the City Momentum Index
In order to capture cities that are successfully transforming, JLL has produced an annual City Momentum Index (CMI), which tracks a city’s short-term socio-economic and real estate momentum, in combination with measures of the longer-term foundations for future success.
The 2015 CMI covers 120 major established and emerging business hubs around the world.
