It is becoming clear that we will never reach a Brexit solution that is accepted by the entire electorate.

Once this is behind us, I hope we can return to the fundamentals of focusing on the UK economy. Although Brexit has spooked the market, this will present an opportunity for investors who are willing to roll their sleeves up.

We expect some of next year’s best opportunities to include office development in undersupplied regional city markets; the repurposing of redundant retail units; investment in retail warehouses that may become good value; and limited speculative development in select London fringe markets exposed to the sharpest risk of discounting amid uncertainty.

Resolution: To make every day a personal best and to learn from my mistakes. There is always room for self-improvement.
