Investors flock to London for lockdown deals

The London property market is in the process of confounding all the pessimists and sceptics as it performs a thrilling V-shaped recovery from the recent Covid-19 slowdown. Encouraged by both UK Government competence and public confidence, investors are back in town and already using their stockpiled liquidity to hunt for the best deals available.

Online expertise needed

Maybank webinar

Although the last four months saw a drop in transactions, we have been tirelessly working behind the scenes in order to help our clients bounce back in both strength and numbers. One of the most effective tools in this process has been our participation in live webinars, designed to inform and advise investors about their post-pandemic timing and tactics. Recently, Marc and I had the pleasure of being guest speakers at a well-attended webinar organised by Maybank for their private clients. Hosted by Head of Maybank Premier Business, Amily Mak and Senior Centre Manager, Ronald Chai, we were able to share insights on investments, the UK economy and all things property investment related.  Anyone who would like to catch the Maybank webinar, can tune in here.
