Despite the coronavirus outbreak, the share of Chinese buyers in prime central London has just hit an all-time high, reported The Telegraph (3 March 2020). Chinese buyers were drawn by the current advantageous currency play and London’s depressed prices. However, Georg Chmiel, executive chairman of Juwai IQI, said that in the context of coronavirus, London is small fry on the scale of safe havens. The biggest spikes in Chinese interest are showing up in Vietnam, Singapore, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. The antipodean isles, particularly, are deemed as a " classic safe place during a global crisis,” said Chmiel.
