We expect year end UK transaction volumes will be above the 10-year average

■ UK transaction volumes over the first nine months of the year total just over £3.1bn. We expect year end volumes will be above the 10-year average.

■ While we were anticipating volumes to be down on 2015 levels, activity for the first nine months of this year remains 12.4% above the long term average.

■ The regional hotel market has maintained its appeal post Brexit helped by continued strong operational performance. We identify our top 10 regional markets going forward.


■ UK Property Companies have been the most active to date this year, but there has been renewed activity by overseas purchasers following Brexit and subsequent currency fluctuations.

■ Prime yields continue to hold with marginal compression for fixed income assets with strong covenants, reflecting renewed appetite for these types of opportunities in the wake of the EU Referendum result.
