Retail Focus Q3 2017

Online sales remain the most rapidly growing segment of the retail sector

Retail sales within the UK fell shy of expectations in Q3, with volumes growing by only 0.6% over the period, the weakest growth in four years

- Investment into the retail warehouse sector continued at a steady pace in Q3 2017, with £451m invested over the period

- Shopping Centre investment remained fairly sluggish in Q3 with only £448.8m invested over the period.

- The High Street investment market had a relatively quiet third quarter, with a noticeable summer "lull" and transaction volumes of £594m, down significantly on the same period in 2016.

- With the economic and political situation in the UK remaining uncertain, a major focus for capital targeting the supermarket sector has been assets with long let secure income with index linked leases.
