Twelve month ago, six UK open-ended commercial property funds suspended trading in the immediate aftermath of the EU Referendum. In a bid to discourage mass outflows, funds including Henderson UK PropertyM&G UK Property PortfolioStandard Life UK Real Estate and Aviva Investors Property Trust also swung their prices down from offer to bid or mid pricing, thereby lowering the prices of the funds by around 5%-6.25%.

Threadneedle's Jordison disagreed with the FCA’s findings

The near-term cause of all this was the uncertainty caused by the outcome of the Brexit referendum, as there were fears that companies are going to leave London as a result of Brexit.
