Less than two thirds (63%) of investors see property as a safe and secure asset in the current market, research from Market Financial Solutions has found.

One in 10 (11%) feel it isn’t secure and the rest are unsure.

Paresh Raja, chief executive of Market Financial Solutions, said: “House prices may not be growing at the same rate they previously have, but with projections suggesting we will see double figure growth in property prices over the next five years, investors are clearly still keen to capitalise on real estate opportunities.

“Over the coming 12 months it will be interesting to see how events both in the UK and internationally impact investors’ intentions – particularly their willingness to embrace risk or adopt a more conservative approach.”

More than half (58%) of investors have lost confidence in the strength of the government since the beginning of last year.

However most (77%) think Brexit is unlikely to affect their long-term investment strategy.
