More positive news for property investment

By Simon Morris On Friday, July 04 th, 2014 · no Comments · In ,

As a London-based independent property specialist who acts in an advisory capacity to UK property investment funds, Simon Morris continues to welcome the influx of positive news regarding UK property market.

Earlier this week the Investment Management Association (IMA) published its monthly statistics for authorised investment funds. The figures revealed that the property sector had net retail sales of £491 million. Property even topped the IMA sector table for the first time in over 4 years.

The strongest month since 2009

Investors are proving increasingly attracted to the strong uplift in capital values seen in the UK commercial property market, as the economy has started to recover, and occupancy rates in the South of England especially are improving massively.

The caveat to this news is the concern that future interest rate rises may cause ripples in the rampant recovery of this particular sector. Other commentators point out that the recovery in the South of England isn’t matched in the regions.

IMA figures single out property

The top five best-selling IMA sectors for May 2014 were:

  • Property with net retail sales of £491 million
  • UK Equity Income with net retail sales of £270 million
  • Global with net retail sales of £248 million
  • £ Strategic Bond with net retail sales of £210 million
  • Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares with net retail sales of £207 million.

The last time that property was the best-selling sector was way back in 2010. This year property proved an increasingly popular choice for those investing in an ISA, according to the IMA; the top three best-selling sectors for ISAs, based on the five fund platforms were:

  • UK Equity Income (£58 million net sales)
  • Property (£39 million net sales)
  • Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares (£37 million net sales)

Confidence has returned

The momentum continues to build behind UK property investment. It’s true that while the recovery is still fairly new and there may be bumps along the road, especially with the inevitable rise in interest rates on the horizon, the market in this sector is increasingly buoyant and shows no sign of slowing down yet.

Confidence has seemingly returned to investors in this asset class, and the market reflects this. While you should always measure the element of risk in your portfolio, at the moment it looks like UK property is a ‘must have’ for the intelligent investor.
