The Belfastmarket has demonstrated strong income returns as well as strong total return performance relative to other UK benchmarks over the medium to long term investment horizons.A key conclusion to be drawn from the research is that now is an opportune time for investment in Belfast and Northern Ireland. The evidence indicates that investorsentiment towards Belfast is improving and it is imperative that this is built upon and that the mechanisms and infrastructure conducive to attracting investment are put in place and that Belfast and Northern Ireland continue to be actively promoted as an attractive investmentdestination.
