However, the significant volatility and uncertainty in financial markets with the prospect of significant increases in interest rates has adversely impacted the commercial property market in relation to investment activity resulting in a re-pricing of assets compared with the position earlier in the year. Therefore, the board has decided to pause the timing of significant property disposals for the time being,’ Executive Chair Steven Owen says.
