Commercial property markets enjoyed a strong first half to 2022, but activity across both occupier and investment markets slowed in recent weeks.

- Further mild yield compression reported in Q2, but signs of stabilisation evident in July
- Retail rents stabilise, while industrial rents continue to rise strongly
