Welcome to the third edition of IN_business, where experts from the CBRE National Team will guide you through key issues and trends for UK Real Estate.
The Autumn edition includes CBRE’s viewpoint on investment and interest rates, the property wish list for Generation Y and Creative occupiers, and in an extract from our 'The UK is Building' report, we compare availability, occupier costs and rents in nine key regional offices markets. We also explore the property implications of increased regional autonomy following the Scottish referendum and provide an update on how institutional investment is progressing within the PRS market.
There is an increasing appetite for specialist assets from investors.
Regional reservations in EMEA are offset by global capital inflows. There is a significant demand for specialist assets from Asia, North America and The Middle East. Operational exposure is now seen as a route to return rather than a necessary evil.
Long income risk adjusted returns will continue to be a principal investor strategy within the specialist sectors.
There is cross-sector demand and a growing focus on exposure to healthcare and retirement living.
There are still perceived barriers to investment which hold back investors from entering the market. Those that understand the markets have gained significant first-mover advantages. Educating new investors, access to capital and relationships with established partners will be key to successful investment.
With pricing strengthening, the buyer pool widening for specialist assets and the amount of capital increasing, there is likely to be significant advancement in the market in 2015. Those that are best aligned operational partners will get the best returns.
