London investment market grows again

Cushman & Wakefield reveals that for the second quarter in a row, the volume of London’s investment market grew.

C&W’s figures for Q3 2009 show that £1.602 bn was invested in central London’s main West End and City & Docklands markets, an increase of over 12% on Q2’s total of £1.432 bn and a 29% rise on the same quarter last year.  It is the first time the capital has delivered two quarters of consecutive growth since Q2 2007.

Weak pound + good returns = willing foreign buyers.
