This article from The Telegraph shows how much we rely on Chinese investment in the UK, particularly, in the real estate sector, although there has been Chinese investment in a number of large "ticket" investments, such as, football clubs. There is already Chinese ownership in football clubs, such as, West Brom, Aston Villa and Wolves. My firm acts for a number of Hong Kong commercial property investors and I read the article from the Telegraph with some interest.  I have not noticed any change in the attitude of Hong Kong investors in the UK property market.  It may be, as the article suggests, that the intention is to restrict Chinese investment in “London prime assets” and that investment is continuing elsewhere in the UK where more value can be identified for those investors.
