UK Real Estate Outlook – Edition 1H18

Market showing resilience against headwinds

15 mars 2018

Although the double digit total returns that the UK commercial property market surprisingly delivered in 2017 are unlikely to be repeated this year, our forecasts have been upgraded to reflect the positive momentum which the market has taken into the new year, and in particular the continuing flow of capital which is targeting UK real estate. The biggest headwind facing the market this year is expected to be the challenging environment for retailers and the impact that could have on more secondary locations, whilst we continue to monitor the Brexit negotiations closely as the discussions move on to the all-important future trading arrangement.
