Uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom's exit plan from the EU (Brexit) has led to a gradual weakening of the English pound, which is giving foreign investors high purchasing power that can be used to accumulate assets in the country. Once the cloud over Brexit has vanished and the situation becomes more clear, the pound can be expected to recover and thus support foreign investors' investments. According to JLL's leading "The Investor" magazine, more and more foreign investors are turning to the real estate market in the United Kingdom, which has shown high returns in recent years, and is expected to continue to rise in the long run.
