London prime residential property prices outperform FTSE by 164%.

Since 2009, the property pages have been filled with news of international buyers purchasing London trophy homes and it’s common knowledge now that overseas buyers have been very active in London’s prime residential property market. What is not often highlighted is how London prime residential property compares to other asset classes or investment categories. Clarendon House Capital have displayed this in a recent study as they join a list of investors looking to invest in the prime London residential property sector as a result of the sector consistently outperforming both gold and the FTSE over a period of 15 years. This recent study states that London prime residential property prices have outperformed the FTSE by 164%, and gold prices by 16% over the period January 1995 to April 2012.
