The British have been obsessed with property for several decades. Is buy-to-let property really a substitute for a well-invested pension pot? Is it a sensible choice in the face of low yields from deposits?

Volume 14 of Acuity weighs up the pros and cons and suggests how property can fit into a well-structured, diversified portfolio.
