Global property investors turn their attention to income generating real assets

09 May 2013

According to the Alternative Investment Report (2013) saving and investing in conventional markets has proven difficult since the market crash of 2008. In response to this buyers have been forced to think differently to find investments that are not correlated to, or reliant on, strong economic growth.

Whilst global property investment has always been a popular option, in support of the report findings, the fundamentals of rental growth and yield are becoming more important to buyers when considering their next acquisition, above capital appreciation. Property yields over the last 30 years have been consistently higher than most fixed interest securities and this combined with the long-term nature of rental contracts means investors can also benefit from a stable income.

We are seeing this trend in sales results, with a variety of projects offering substantial yields currently on offer.

Company Director Pauline Bonnani states;

“We have seen a massive surge in demand from global investors seeking income-producing assets.

The belief is that owning tangible assets that are part of credible projects provides a much more positive experience for investors than investing in abstract funds with faceless managers, high charges and complicated investment briefs.”
