Plotting the path to coronavirus recovery
Data analytics in implementing recovery strategies for cities
It is clear that we are entering times of unprecedented risks and opportunities for property investors. Long-term companies like British Land and their investors are ready to manage the downside risks and opportunities linked to the coronavirus recovery in cities. But successful investing in property and other assets will require new data to do this across markets in a time of unprecedented market volatility. With the UK’s commercial property sector valued at around US $1.5 trillion prior to coronavirus, and the global sector worth over US $30 trillion, the recovery of the property sector – across commercial and residential segments – will be hugely important for the global economy.
Data is key to implementing a recovery strategy

With just 5 cities – New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Paris are accounting for the lion’s share of inbound commercial property investments in 2019-2020, these cities also have the most to gain from a well-planned recovery.
