Palace Capital is a UK property investment company. It is not sector-specific and looks for opportunities where it can enhance long-term income and capital value through asset management and strategic capital development in locations outside London.

Investment summary

Palace Capital recently reported FY19 results and announced plans to convert to REIT status, approved by shareholders at the AGM. The results showed further growth in recurring earnings and positive like-for-like valuation growth but they also reflected the deferral of some letting activity to pursue refurbishment and redevelopment opportunities. Our revised forecasts now include the impact of the Hudson Quarter development in York, which we expect to be a key driver of returns over the next two years.

Industry outlook

The supply demand balance for regional office and industrial property remains generally firm, and a positive yield spread between the regions and London offers potential for further narrowing. Parts of the retail sector are displaying clear signs of stress.
