Capital Markets

UK Capital View: Summer 2019 Overview
Investors continue to respond to structural changes across the real estate sectors and a lower interest rate, lower return environment. Driving income growth remains the focus for investors.  
Healthcare: Strong long-term demographic trends are helping to drive investment demand
The growing pool of funds looking to gain exposure to the UK real estate sector has pushed returns lower across the traditional core sectors and increased the level of competition for assets. This is encouraging investors to look into other real estate sectors that are supported by longer term demographic trends.
Residential Investments sector to reach £146bn by 2025

Capital remains the ultimate global marketplace for property investors
Despite a number of potential headwinds, the London investment market roared back to strength in 2017 with a 33% increase in transaction volumes.
