The strong momentum in the investment market is expected to continue throughout 2022. Overall volumes are forecast to exceed £60 bn again, which would be only the third time that two consecutive years have been recorded at this level.
Overall total returns are also expected to remain positive. JLL’s December 2021 forecasts show All Property total returns reaching 6.0% in 2022. Respondents to our survey were a little more optimistic, with 66% expecting returns of 5% - 10%, and 9% expecting returns to exceed this level.

“Capital is ever more sensitive to environmental, social and human factors, and sustainability and technology remain the key overarching themes around which the majority of investment activity and decision making continue to coalesce. The best buildings are now the most sustainable buildings, and the most sustainable buildings are increasingly reliant on new technologies to drive, measure and improve operational performance.”
