6. UK Residential Investment and Development Guide (White Paper) -Launch Ceremony
13:30 - 14:00 v Main presentation hall

TheUK Residential Investment and Development Guide provides a comprehensive investigation of the UK housing market. It employs a unique 5-Star Evaluative Model for overseas investment. Through five main elements for decision-making, i.e. safety, profitability, risk controllability, stability, and convenience, it enables essential understanding and comparison of the market. 

Safety, Stability and Risk Controllability featured UK's housing investment market, mainly ascribed to its political, economic, legal and social stability, making it into a "safe heaven". Lasting housing shortage acts as an underlying factor for the surge of housing price and increased renting demand brings in steady growth of rental income and investment profit. The relative lower rate of convenience is related to formal procedure of housing transaction and regulation over foreign investment.

This report further highlights that it becomes highly attractive to High Net Worth Investors from China to combine property with Healthcare and Med-tech in their investment portfolio.
