Industry outlook

Despite economic uncertainties, Brexit-related and otherwise, regional occupier demand is generally firm, driven by continuing economic growth and business relocation away from London, while new supply remains limited. Meanwhile, the yield spread between the regions and London remains historically wide at c 2%, compared with a 2008 market peak of c 0.5%, representing a clear potential for narrowing.
