Investors and advisors predicted this election result will mark the beginning of a UK investment surge, as both international capital and domestic money kept pent up by uncertainty about Brexit now chase UK yields and property market liquidity.
Now, the party in power is united internally- the majority of the most committed “remain” conservatives were ejected before the election and it’s no longer reliant on cobbling together coalitions of the unwilling to get anything done in parliament. Johnson’s deal – the one that markets were broadly happy with before the election was called – is now the ways we’re going to go.
There will be big international money, long-term local money, opportunistic local investors and voices in the urban living sector, both on and off the record. The investors and advisors conclusion is that a conservative majority means a revival of the UK’s property investment market after 12 months of minimal activity.
The grounds for investing in the UK were good and are good. Yields have fallen in most of the investable world but in the UK they have risen a little. For opportunistic local capital, the election result may mean a few more opportunities to buy, and some welcome opportunities to sell, but wise heads are cautiously biding their time until the economic picture becomes clearer.
The UK economy beneath the overly of political chaos has been doing fine. A burst of stimulus in all the right places could really add a decent kicker on top. Overall, if you’re an investor, this is probably the best outcome you could have hoped for, regardless of your other political convictions.
The election result feels like the end of something, and the start of something new. It certainly puts the immediate problems of Brexit to bed, and it inaugurates a new phase of a majority government. But what happens with longer-term trade talks remains as cloudy as ever.
