    Direct investment in the UK (my home market) and leaning towards collective investments for any future overseas exposure.

    Direct investment for markets where I have knowledge and a good understanding of how the system works. For markets I would like exposure to but have little or no practical knowledge of the purchase/sale process I will be going for collective investment vehicles.

    In general collective investment vehicles are more liquid but not always! Just ask those who tried to sell units in UK real estate collectives straight after the Brexit vote. Many funds were forced to suspend redemptions as they were running out of funds and unable to jetison their property investments to raise cash.
