Wells Fargo is a sponsor of the Investment Property Forum (IPF) Research Programme, the largest research programme of its kind in the UK. IPF conducts research on risk, depreciation, correlation, sustainability, pricing, and more. Short papers and forecasts, including the ones below, are available to the public. IPF members can access reports and publications from the last 12 months through the IPF resource library, which also includes a back catalogue of reports accessible to the public.
A research paper presenting the 2015 Nick Tyrrell Research Prize winning research. This research examines the relationship between foreign investment levels and capitalisation rates in European office markets. The research models transaction data and prime yields for 28 European centres over the period 1999 to 2013, concluding that foreign investment has a significant negative impact on capitalisation rates. The results raise implications for pricing, local market analysis, and office market segmentation.
A Short Paper that extends earlier research for the IPF paper "Outlook for Development Finance 2011." The research examines changes in the market since 2011 and assesses the availability of development finance in 2015, whilst exploring current debt terms and whether there is sufficient debt provision. The research also comments on the market outlook and the impact of banking regulation. Regulatory capital requirements for development loans are outlined in an appendix, with particular reference to Basel II.
A briefing paper explaining how the build-to-rent sector could provide an accelerated path to meeting the UK’s housing demands. A comparative analysis of the build-to-rent and build-to-sell sectors identifies the barriers to market, such as the build-to-rent sector’s lower annual rate of return that falls short of investors' requirements. Solutions are suggested, including consideration of affordable housing allocations, planning conditions, covenants, and vendor land receipt levels. Appendices provide an illustrative development appraisal, together with a policy overview.
