Well ahead of New York and Sydney, London has become the most desirable destination for Asian-funded residential property investment in the last 2/3 years.
A number of factors have influenced this continuing progression, not least London being globally perceived as a mature and stable economy, offering one of the highest returns on investment – compared to many other major international cities – and wholly welcoming foreign funds.
As well as Russian and Middle Eastern customers, Kings has been dealing with an increasing number of Chinese investors during this time, so establishing Kings’ Hong Kong (HK) office has had the dual benefit of acting as a ready marketing showcase for some of London’s ideal investment property [particularly active in the £350,000 to £1.8m price range], but also as a base for those Staff in HK to give personally tailored advice to investors located in and around the Asia Pacific region, whether HK, Mainland Chinese Nationals, or British/other expats looking to expand their holdings.
Whilst Kings would expect to undertake the Management of an investor’s post-purchase lettings, HK-based, same time zone liaison with Clients has proved a winning combination for the bespoke service many discerning investors seek.
Equally, having Chinese spoken in our UK Office complements our impeccable local Service, upon which Kings’ reputation has been built.
