900 per cent increase in UK investors’ activity in property funds post Brexit


Analysis from reveals that activity from UK retail investors in property funds has risen by 900 per cent following Brexit compared with the same period a year earlier, with outflows outweighing inflows by more than 12 times.

The analysis mirrors latest data released by the Investment Property Databank that shows UK property values fell by -2.4 per cent in July. The study found that investor outflows from property funds via peaked in the third week following Brexit (commencing 4 July) but dropped sharply thereafter.
Stuart Dyer,’s Chief Investment Officer, says: “Self-directed investors pulled out of property funds in droves following Brexit, which would have played a role in driving down commercial property prices. But our data suggests that gating was actually quite effective – or rather, than things could have been much worse without the gating/pricing adjustments.”
