Alternatives


Alternatives transactions totalled a record £15.7bn in 2017, and now make up more than a quarter of the total commercial property market in the UK. We predict that Alternatives will continue to outperform the remainder of the commercial property market in 2018.

There are some key themes that are emerging as the market's appetite continues to grow and innovate. We are creating innovative ways for investors to access the market, and to capitalise on the evolving amount of data and analysis available to help us explain risk.

Alternative investment volumes 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
