INVESTMENT MARKET

UK retail warehouses transaction volumes have rocketed in 2017, with competition for space driven by online shopping. Volumes to date in 2017 reflect the confidence and impetus in the market. Consumer confidence remains relatively robust, which is filtering through into positive investor appetite across the sector.
New buyers are appearing alongside local authorities and the traditional institutional investor base, placing downward pressure on yields across the board for better quality assets. 2017 is expected to finish strongly as the sector continues to compare favourably to alternative sub-sectors.
