Investment in the UK commercial property sector totalled £20.5bn in the final quarter of 2014 – a 26% increase on the previous quarter and the highest quarterly performance on record.
The latest edition of our UK Investment Transactions report reveals that investment in the regions increased by 41% to £21.1bn for the year as a whole – the second highest figure on record. This is the primarily the result of the resurgence of UK institutional investors – which increased inflows by almost 30% in 2014 – buoyed by improving economic sentiment beyond the capital.
In the West Midlands, total investment during 2014 soared to £2.31 billion – up from £1.59 billion in 2013 – an increase of around 44%.
