Alternatives


There were more than £12.3 billion of transactions in alternatives in 2016, accounting for 29% of all commercial market activity. We are predicting that alternatives deal volumes will increase to £15 billion this year as investors look for better returns as economic uncertainty weighs down on the more traditional commercial sectors.

JLL has the largest dedicated alternatives team in the industry, having been active in the market for over 30 years. In 2016, we were directly involved in nearly a quarter of all alternatives transactions, as well as our specialists providing consultancy and valuation advice. To find out how we can help you, please do get in touch.

Alternatives in 2017



  • "Investors like the fact that the student housing sector is driven by demographics rather than boom and bust"

    Philip Hillman

  • "We help our clients to understand the drivers and risks, and to spot where opportunities lie"

    Ollie Saunders, Lead Director, Alternatives

  • "With a forecast shortfall of over 300,000 care beds, 4,000 GP premises not fit for purpose and a critically ageing NHS real estate - there has never been a better time to invest"

    Phil Hall, Healthcare

  • "There is only half a square foot of self storage per head of population in the UK and even less on the continent - the market is still undersupplied"

    Kathryn Pitts, Self Storage
