When researching this article and deciding how to illustrate the cover we couldn’t help returning to the theme of how London has more and more international players entering the market, subsequently increasing prices.

What is clear is that London property is one of the de-facto safe havens of the global rich. As the wealth and population of the planet increases, it becomes smaller, and the demand for the uber brand of ‘London property’ will become much more intense, perhaps more so than we can ever imagine today.
