Property/Planning: Thinking laterally
The advent of the limited liability partnership in April 2001 has created a vehicle that is ideally suited, albeit unintentionally, to the needs of small groups of commercial property investors. Richard Reuben reports
As investors are all too aware, equities have been producing poor, or even negative, returns for some time. In contrast, returns from property investment have been relatively stable, hovering consistently around the 10% mark. According to the IPD Index for March 2003, incorporating a recent Barclays Capital Equity & Gilts Study, property has outperformed equities, not only in the short term, but also for a 10-year period. Perhaps unsurprisingly, therefore, property has become increasingly popular with investors.
