January 2020 Global Healthcare Property Report from Redwoods Dowling Kerr
Welcome to 2020, the start of a new decade and a new era for the UK healthcare market. 2020
promises to be a year of deal making for the healthcare property sector driven by the certainty
and confidence gained from the recent election result.
2019 was a fantastic year for healthcare business sales, a year when deals occurred at lightning pace and in all regions for all sizes of operations.
In 2019 Redwoods Dowling Kerr brokered in excess of £27m worth of transaction volumes and we are very excited about 2020 as we carry forward significant deal pipelines which we expect to complete in quarter 1, 2020.
2019 was a strong year for Healthcare transactions building on the growth witnessed in 2018 and 2017. Many in the industry have been surprised by the confidence demonstrated during a period of historic uncertainty and a gridlocked government who for the majority of the year were incapable of passing legislation and making any progressive policy decisions.
A carry over effect from 2019 is the pent-up investment which built up, primarily from international investors who spent the latter half of the year waiting to see what the outcome of the Brexit discussions and the Election result would be.
Now that the political landscape offers more clarity, we expect significant international investment to take place during 2020 resulting in a greater level of transactions than witnessed in 2019.
