Commercial property provides the physical space for almost all economic activity that takes place in the UK, whether in the form of office, industrial or retail space. In 2015, the value of commercial property represented 10% of the UK’s net wealth and, with increasing rental income and property values climbing at over 3% since 2008, makes an attractive investment opportunity.
