We are living in extraordinary times and in one way or another we have all been impacted by Coronavirus this year. The property industry like all other sectors has faced enormous challenges during 2020. We’ve seen lenders and investors hit with uncertainty, occupiers forced to close their doors, and owners losing income from their assets.
We are proud of the advice and support we’ve been able to continue giving our public and private sector clients during the year, whilst at the same time adapting to running our firm in accordance with Government guidelines and restraints.
We are incredibly fortunate to end this year as a strong business. Something we owe to our talented people. We recognise the magnitude of their support to SW during this year, between working from home, furlough and juggling home schooling and caring for the vulnerable, they have each shown an incredible ability to adapt with an admirable amount of resilience and positivity. It has been a humbling reminder that our people are what makes our business great.
As we look to the year ahead it’s difficult to say with much certainty what further challenges we will face. With a vaccination in the pipeline we are hopeful to see some return to normality. We look forward to office workers bustling around our cities again with shops, bars and restaurants able to thrive, and whilst we know some businesses will have been forced to change or even close completely, we hope the void left will result in entrepreneurs, start-ups and new innovative ideas come to market that reinvigorate the economy and create jobs and a brighter future for all.
Our 2020 annual review features some of our best work from this year alongside some industry insight. Thank you for taking the time to have a look through and please get in touch if you want to know more.
