BrickInvest: Nervous investors turning from UK to Germany

Published at: 2019-05-06 11:59 | Author: CIJEurope.com
The popularity of Germany as an investment target is falling, largely at the expense of the UK, according to a new study by BrickVest. The on-line property investment platform’s Barometer report, which polls over 6,000 investors, showed support for UK investing collapsing between Q4 2018 and Q1 2019 from 43 percent to 29 percent. By contrast, Germany’s popularity as investors’ most attractive investment destination rose over the period to 26 percent. France’s standing also firmed to 16 percent.

The Barometer study also demonstrated a waning appetite for risk, as high-risk approaches were preferred by just 18 percent while interest in moderate risk strategies rose to 57 percent during Q1 (though BrickVest failed to provide Q4 numbers). Fears over Brexit appear to the the obvious reason for the lack of confidence in the UK markets. “With no immediate political solution likely, there is every possibility that investor confidence in the UK will continue to slide in the months to come,” said Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest. “While not without their own challenges, both France and especially Germany grew in popularity over the preceding quarter.”
