UK commercial investment volumes reach £26.9bn

Some £26.9bn has been invested in the UK commercial market in the first half of the year, according to research by Savills.

H1 2018 was 32% higher than the long-term average for the first half of the year. 

This marked the fifth consecutive year of above-average H1 volumes.

UK institutions invested £875m into the regional office market.

This is the highest level of UK investment since 2009, accounting for 35% of the £2.5bn overall total.

The most active sectors included offices, which accounted for 41% of all investment (£10.9bn), while retail produced £5.7bn of investment (21%).

James Gulliford, joint head of UK investment at Savills (pictured above), said: “The underlying fundamentals of the regional office markets remain robust, industrial and logistics assets are performing strongly, and the shopping sector market is set to be more active in H2, so we anticipate that 2018 will close out another strong year for commercial investment overall.”
