Sovereign and large pension schemes in London have been some the most active investors
over the past 18 months, Property Week reports.
It follows a recent study by global social network CREOPoint and KPMG which found that the UK's major cities dominated the online conversation during the recent MIPIM conference.
The firms revealed that London, Manchester and Birmingham were among the cities that dominated internet searches last month.
Speaking to the news provider, Jonathan Thompson, KPMG's global head of real estate, noted that London has made a large impact on investors over the past 18 month. In particular, large regeneration schemes such as Earls Court, Kings Cross, the Olympic village and Nine Elms have been of particular interest.
"Another obvious reason for London reaching the top spot in MIPIM trending topics is that sovereign and large pension schemes have been some of the most active investors
over the last 18 months," Mr Thompson added.
