Market Insights - Retail Outlook 2017

The outlook for the retail sector will be mixed. Economic and political events are expected to weaken consumer confidence and retail spend, while technological advances will continue to change the dynamics of the sector.

The retail economy will face a number of headwinds in the short term, but with the outlook for offices under pressure from political events and high demand for industrials from various market players, retail should provide more attractively priced, income driven opportunities for investors.
