Market Trends – November 2020

As Christmas fast approaches and market activity starts to wind down, many look forward to celebrating the end to what has been a difficult year. There is now light at the end of the tunnel, with the approval and roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine, which will reunite families and friends and give much needed hope to the many small and medium businesses that have struggled through the national and local lockdowns.

The dramatic changes to how we live, the furlough schemes and redundancies have boosted career changes with many looking to start or buy a new business, especially in sectors that have proven resilient during the Pandemic. It’s therefore not surprising that ‘Convenience stores’ continue to dominate the most enquired to business type, as food retail has been one of the most successful sectors this year. Brits choosing to holiday at home as holidays abroad were cancelled or meant having to quarantine for two weeks, have also meant a surge in searches to buy a campsite or a caravan park. Stay-cations look set to continue, especially as many decide to do their part to help the environment and keep their carbon footprint low. Investing in this sector appears to be a good buy.
