The Channel Islands' leading private bank lender in the property market says real estate in the islands is increasingly attractive for local and international investors.
Jane Niles, Head of Real Estate at Investec, believes that the islands' stability and their status as offshore finance centres supported by world class professional services are the main attractions for investors seeking enhanced yields and strong tenancies in the property market.
Writing in Property Week, Ms Niles said: "Demand in all aspects of the market has been high and the investment opportunity is increasingly attracting attention.
"Both the quality and innovative nature of the projects Investec has funded demonstrate that developers and real estate investors alike believe in the underlying resilience of the economies and property markets in Guernsey and Jersey."
