Cardiff Ranks Second For Disposable Income Across the UK


We all know London prices are exorbitant – but the capital's higher wages make up for it, right?

Wrong, according to Capgemini. The management consultant has crunched the numbers on average rents and salaries to find the UK city where you’re left with most disposable income after paying your bills.

It seems we should all be moving to Edinburgh, based on disposable income alone.

With just over £800 of your salary left over after paying rent, utility and travel costs, residents of the Scottish city have nearly 25 per cent more left in their wallet than the runner-up Cardiff – and almost three times as much as Londoners.
