Daniel Daggers, Knight Frank’s super prime team head in London, has managed the sale of over $2.5 billion of property since his career began in 1997: including ‘some of the most expensive assets sold in the UK in the last 12 months’. He focuses on properties in excess of £10 million, a market in flux: ‘Most of the people who are acquiring super prime property at £10 million to £30 million in London now are doing so out of necessity — there are very few discretionary purchasers,’ he says, noting a ‘strong’ market remains for ‘best in class’ trophy assets. Global events may have made for tricky atmospherics, but Daggers is unfazed. He highlights recent in-house data revealing that the total value of sales of over £30 million across the London market rose by almost 20 per cent between January and June 2017, compared with the same period in 2016. His team alone has been involved in close to £261 million of property sales, of which seven properties were off-market: ‘This is testament to our knowledge of, and expertise in, the super prime market.’ Tech industry IPOs, along with the influx of young Chinese UHNWs, has meant his client profile is changing along with ‘the way they communicate — clients in today’s market expect the delivery of information more quickly than ever before’. Daggers highlights the firm’s access to ‘the most up to date research, and the best assets available’. The keen footballer recently represented Great Britain at The Maccabiah Games.
