London: Knowledge for the Future
London, as capital city of the UK, is a constantly changing place, shaped by its people and its property in equal measure.
Its prosperity to date has been based on its diversity, its scale and its talented population, all of which seem likely to remain as defining characteristics of the city going forward. But as we look ahead to 2040, what are the factors that will most impact the capital’s capacity to evolve and adapt?
On Tuesday 30 October over 200 clients and home team attended the London Market Insight Breakfast held at The May Fair Hotel.
The theme for the event was ‘London: Knowledge for the Future’ tying in with the Our Cities campaign. Kevin McCauley, Head of London Research explored the latest trends in the property market and our forecasts for the future in the face of political and economic uncertainty. Our guest speaker Noreena Hertz discussed the influences of technology, economics, social change and Generation K, and what the implications of these influences were for London and real estate.
