The Brexit vote attracted more investors from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau to the UK, reports Macau Business (31 October 2017). Thanks to London's stable long-term returns and repute as a financial hub, Chinese investors rushed to take advantage of the post-Brexit fall of the pound to buy UK properties at a discount. According to Carrie Law, CEO of Chinese real estate website, Chinese buyer enquiries surged following the Brexit referendum vote, with buyers calling up London agents to ask about any transactions opportunities that opened up due local homebuyers backing out on deals post-Brexit. “Brexit hasn’t caused Greater China buyers to lose confidence in London’s long-term prospects. Chinese are big believers in London and UK property investment. They tend to believe it will also be a world capital, an appealing place to live, and a centre for prestigious educational institutions,” said Law.
