Scotland is looking beyond Brexit by opening its sights to the world and is actively seeking foreign investment into the real estate sector. The economic landscape is fertile: with a growing economy a highly skilled workforce, the Scottish Government is investing massively in infrastructure, with £4 bn earmarked for implementation in 2018/9 alone.

Opportunities are to be found across sectors including offices, logistics and retail. One notable growth sector is hotels/hospitality (infrastructure), as tourism in Scotland increased 15% last year, with over 14m people, mainly from Europe, visiting in 2017. Scotland’s world-class universities continue to attract large numbers of foreign students, so student housing poses a strong investment. The residential market is being pushed up the agenda as the shortage of housing, especially affordable housing, is becoming apparent.

Come to this time-efficient briefing, hear the view of market-leading experts and get to ask your own questions. Attendance is free but registration is essential. Please book now to ensure your place.
