Industrial sector primed for record investment

26/10/2015

At £1.3bn, investment into the industrial sector during Q3 2015 was down 14% on the previous quarter but remains strong, according to new research from Lambert Smith Hampton.

Key findings from the Q3 2015 edition of our Industrial Investment update report include:

  • Q3 activity was heavily focused on Distribution Warehouses, which accounted for three quarters of total
  • volume.
  • The multi-let market has seen further yield compression during Q3 2015, driven by numerous institutional fund requirements and tangible rental growth prospects.
  • Strong demand for prime estates has also put downward pressure on yields for secondary estates.
  • Going into 2016 we expect to see an increase in funding for speculative development.
  • We expect a flurry of industrial portfolio deals in Q4 and are aware of over £400m of portfolios being prepared or brought to the market at present.
