Retail in London Best Investment Option

By - Friday 01 April 2011

Retail property in central London is regarded as one of the best investment options, according to the Colliers International Real Estate Capital Pricing Survey.

Designed to analyse the pricing of the different property sectors for both prime and secondary products, the research found that retail is the most favoured asset with 64 per cent of investors.

This was followed by offices at 43 per cent and industrial at 36 per cent, Colliers said. Central London was regarded as the best place for UK retail investment, with the south-east, south-west, west-midlands and Scotland other preferred locations.

The survey also found that 79 per cent of respondents believe a property's yield and the possibility for high income return was the main attraction for investors, while 50 per cent of respondents said that their investment risk appetite had not changed.

According to the consultancy, secondary offices, retail warehouses, shopping centres and industrials are all under priced and present a number of opportunities for buyers at the moment.

Despite this, Colliers said that, apart from the office and retail warehouse sectors, rental growth expectations for this year remain negative. But the following year will see rental growth forecasts move into positive territory across all sectors.
