Growth sectors and locations attract capital

Reasons to diversify

Property investment is at a crossroads as investors are exploring growth sectors and locations to keep pace with evolving trends. As the market pivots, growth property sectors are thriving and present opportunities. Living, logistics, life sciences, data centres and self-storage offer a different risk and return profile and are outperforming traditional asset returns. Well-being is a priority. As people return to the office, work patterns are shifting, and offices are revitalising. Investment priorities must be reconsidered as the impact on people, communities and the planet becomes key to every decision.


End-users drive demand

In our changing world, offices, shops and logistics businesses across the UK are opening their doors to employees and customers in a different way, with high demand from the younger population in urban areas.

New sectors attract capital

Investors are showing a growing interest in build-to-rent properties, a standout performer within the living category as well as student housing, healthcare and co-living projects.

Regional cities rise in importance

Diversifying investments into satellite UK cities is delivering successful outcomes, with the fastest rental growth in a decade. Almost half of investors surveyed aim to focus more on city investment strategies than before the pandemic.
