Outside the Box – Episode 2 - Market Challenges

In the second episode of our Outside the Box podcast, we look at market challenges and opportunities in the industrial and logistics sector.  Miri Stickland, Forsters’ Head of Knowledge, is joined by Magnus Hassett, Partner and Head of Industrial and Logistics at Forsters, and Ben Sleath, Equity partner at DTRE

In early 2023 businesses were recovering from a turbulent political period and much uncertainty remained.  Had inflation really peaked?  How much would interest rates rise by?  Our research report from Spring 2023 (Outside the Box - Supporting an Industrial Evolution) revealed the general sentiment seemed to be that the warehouse bubble had burst, but the jury was out as to whether the industrial real estate sector faced a sustained downturn.  The report also identified a range of opportunities across the UK market, and as we know, sometimes the greatest opportunities arise from facing the greatest challenges.  In this podcast we discuss how has the industrial and logistics market has progressed in 2023 and Ben Sleath shares his views on occupier demand and rental growth and where the opportunities might be in 2024.
