UK Alternative Predictions 2019
Alternatives are now an established feature of the mainstream property market.
In 2017, Alternatives accounted for 26% of the total investment market at £15.7 billion.
There were a number of landmark deals across each of the different sectors, with a majority of investors looking to increase their exposure. Investors are becoming increasingly aware of the core fundamentals that support Alternatives, as well as the benefits of higher returns and long dated income. However, the biggest factor that is going to drive the growth of Alternatives further is the growing amount of data and analysis that is available to help explain risk to our investor clients. JLL’s unique positioning across Alternatives, and the scale of our involvement having transacted 32% of Alternatives deals in
2017, means that we are able to bring added transparency and value across each sector. Our key prediction for 2018 is that Alternatives will continue to outperform mainstream commercial property.
