Key operating highlights

The strength of our commercial market positions and the resilience of our residential businesses underpinned an improved performance for Savills in 2015.

  • Transaction Advisory revenues up 25% driven by the contribution from Savills Studley in the US, continued recovery in Continental European markets, market share gains in Asia and a strong performance in the UK
  • Record revenue in the UK on the back of continued strength of commercial markets despite weaker Residential performance
  • Growth in profits in Continental Europe following improved market conditions and the benefit of management actions taken in recent years
  • Further growth from non-transactional services with Consultancy revenue up 6% and Property Management revenue up 15%, with the UK acquisition of Smiths Gore contributing to this increase.
