Investment

We work in conjunction with a range of institutional, fund management, family office and private equity-backed investors and actively pursue strategically located student accommodation development and investment opportunities in both established and emerging markets across the risk-return spectrum.

We focus on capital deployment-related activities where we act in a standalone advisory capacity or actively engage in investment initiatives through strategic or joint venture partnering arrangements, augmented by tailored advisory services programmes.

We adhere to a consistent, balanced and disciplined value-based investment strategy and concentrate upon identifying situations that offer substantial upside potential with limited risk of loss of capital.

Our investment decisions are based on a careful analysis of key market fundamentals, in line with our underlying emphasis on delivering strong and sustainable asset performance.

We proactively target opportunities with high value creation potential in geographical markets characterised by a structural undersupply of purpose-built student accommodation.

We specifically focus on UK towns and cities that are home to research-intensive universities, comprising Russell Group members, and/or major post-1992 universities, typically forming part of the University Alliance.

Our activities encompass: ◊ New Build & Redevelopment Schemes ◊ Conversion & Refurbishment Projects ◊ Brownfield Sites & Urban Regeneration Initiatives ◊ Operational Asset Transactions (Single & Portfolio) ◊ Forward Funding & Forward Purchase Agreements.

By adopting a hands-on, proactive approach to origination, planning, development and asset management, we are able to identify and extract embedded value throughout the investment process.
