Knight Frank Research Residential Research, my colleagues across the pond, have produced a new publication: Global Residential Market Forecast 2011 which assesses the risk of threats facing property markets across the globe. I interviewed Liam Bailey, Head of Residential Research and Andrew Shirley last March on the release of their annual Wealth Report. They produce fascinating research and are both accessible and knowledgable.
