Protecting Business from Terror

It is a sad fact of life that the market for insuring against terror attacks is rapidly growing. Generally, cover against terror is not included as standard by most UK commercial property insurers. After the Baltic Exchange Bomb in 1992, there was a considerable period where in fact no insurers offered it at all, leading […]

What did the Lehman collapse have to do with real estate?

In 2006, the European commercial property industry achieved its biggest year yet. Investment volumes across the continent topped EUR225 billion at a pace of growth that saw sales double since 2004.
