Analysis of the large listed property companies shows a big boost after the immediate depression following the EU Referendum. In many ways such a big gain in the market comes as a surprise as the London property market has started to flounder and foreign investment creeps ever upward.

In places such as Manchester, the investment market risks reaching an oversupply in the coming years. It may be enough for investors to start gravitating away from the buy-to-let market they have so desired in recent times and towards the asset classes that have been prominent but not necessarily fashionable.

Distribution, as a traditional property asset, appears to be firmly out-performing others in its class. Although probably speculation at this stage, investors may well be looking towards the comforting assets they know well in the wake of Brexit uncertainties.
