Sovereign Centros CEO Chris Geaves writes: “2020 will go down in history as one of the most challenging years for retail from all perspectives - whether you are a retailer, supplier, owner, investor, shopper, advisor or anyone else connected to the sector. From our perspective we had a good year despite these difficult conditions. We saw steady growth of assets under management, completion of some exciting development repurposing and an expansion of our team with some first-rate people.
“Looking forward, thankfully there will be some light at the end of the tunnel as the COVID vaccine gets distributed. Sentiment is a key driver which will improve and we believe confidence will return as we head on into 2021. There is certainly a sense of real optimism in the Firm with some great projects on our books.”
