The UK investment market’s post-pandemic recovery accelerated during the second quarter of 2021, with the total of £16.9bn transacted across all sectors breaking previous Q2 records. This followed a solid start to the year, with first quarter volumes of £11.6bn in line with the 10-year Q1 average. Overall investment across the first half of 2021 reached £28.5bn, which ranks as the second-highest H1 on record.
In this report JLL’s Capital Markets team analyse current investment trends and assess the likely outlook for the remainder of the year. We also publish the results of our latest Investor Survey. Find out what the commercial real estate industry is expecting over the next 12 months, including views on sustainability, the impact of the government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda, and the role of international capital.
“Looking forward, the key themes of sustainability and technology will remain at the forefront of investor thinking. The combination of these two areas will be an interesting feature, as new technologies are increasingly utilised to enhance sustainability and health and wellbeing within our built environment. There will clearly be costs involved in this transformation, but investors have signalled their willingness to engage and meet the challenge.”
