“With the current outlook, both politically and economically, uncertain, risk aversion among commercial property investors is expected to remain a major trend over the foreseeable future. Property assets with long lease structures and strong rental covenants are therefore attracting attention as investors seize on opportunities to create long-term, secure, income-producing assets. This means asset classes such as warehouses, student accommodation and mixed-use assets will continue to grow in popularity.”
