Ellie EvansOn 15th October Volterra partner Ellie Evans spoke at Strutt & Parker’s Development & Planning breakfast seminar ‘Building with Certainty’. The event was attended by over a hundred property professionals and covered a wide range of topics from political stability to development funding and city investment. Ellie opened the event giving a presentation on the economic outlook. Ellie explained that the UK economic outlook is very positive, with strong GDP growth, low unemployment and real wage growth finally returning. However she also discussed the risks to this including China’s recent stock market crash, and specifically in the context of property, the rising unaffordability of housing, particularly in London and the South East and whether this can continue.
