Building Back Better and for Success

Uncertainty has weighed on the UK since the EU referendum in 2016, compounded by a poor response to Covid in 2020, creating conditions where the UK not only had a health crisis but also where GDP contracted by 9.9% – the deepest slump since 1709. The pandemic gave protection to occupiers from rental payments, created restrictions on buying or selling assets, and saw debt providers temporarily pause from enforcing sales on defaulting loans and making new loans. With the UK largely having been off the map of global investors for the last few years, real estate values have lagged many other parts of the world.
