* Leading city: London ranked 1st, Paris 2nd and Moscow 3rd - but Moscow is catching up fast
* Leading retailer: Zara only retailer with 100% coverage in all leading European retail markets
* Main retail exporters: Italian retail fascias most exported, with US 2nd and UK 3rd - but US will leapfrog Italy in 2013
* Market opportunity: only nine retailers have over 80% coverage across 57 key markets

London is the most attractive European location for international retailers, according to a new cross-border retailer index compiled by global real estate adviser Jones Lang LaSalle.

The index, launched today in a new client report entitled Destination Europe 2013 analyses the expansion and presence of 250 international retailers.

London comes out as most attractive city across 57 key retail markets. Paris, Moscow, Milan and Madrid, all mature retail markets, comprise the remainder of the top five most attractive cities.

James Dolphin, Head of EMEA Retail Agency, Jones Lang LaSalle said:
"London is a springboard for many retailers who want to expand internationally. We have seen several US and now Chinese retailers start their European journey over the past few months in this way. More will follow, driven in part by Westfield's successfully launched new shopping centres, continued demand for space in Bond Street, Oxford Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden, but also sustained market opportunity, tourism levels post the Olympics, political stability and a transparent real estate market."
