UK Property remains a popular asset class for Hong Kong based investors, but a weaker pound and continued demand to own a space in one of the world’s leading cities are driving London property prices to new highs and their rental yields to new lows. Fortunately, there are still many opportunities for higher returns outside of Greater London that also benefit from the UK’s strong legal protections, favorable tax treatment of foreign investors, and competitive long-term fundamentals. This seminar will mostly focus on UK property markets within England and Wales.
This seminar goes beyond the all-too-common sales pitch for off-plan London properties to HK-based investors and instead discusses:
1. UK Listed Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) a way of earning rental yield with greater flexibility and liquidity
2. How investors can earn higher returns by having cash ready to buy low from motivated sellers
3. How cities like Birmingham offer more upside potential than London, and
4. How to protect the value of UK investments against further declines of the Pound
