The Case for UK Property - September 2016

The UK commercial property market has had to withstand a considerable rise in both financial and economic market volatility since the start of 2016. First, there was the turbulence in global equity markets at the beginning of 2016, after which came the result of the UK Referendum in June 2016, with the UK public opting to leave the European Union.

The political and economic climate is expected to remain highly uncertain over the course of the next two years, dampening confidence levels and growth prospects in the interim. Nonetheless, we still feel confident that UK property will be better positioned than other mainstream asset classes to deliver favourable performance for investors in the medium term to long term. This short paper assesses why UK property makes a compelling investment in the context of current market conditions.
