There is a chronic shortage of affordable housing throughout the UK, with over 8 million people living in unaffordable, insecure or unsuitable homes. The position is even more acute regarding the lack of high quality, energy efficient affordable housing for rent.
Our investment strategy focuses on two types of property: New, ready built property and ‘Retro-fit property’ which is housing association property which must be retrofitted/re-developed to meet 2030 net zero carbon and safety legislation. Investment in both types of property enables investors to gain exposure to quality assets, leased to qualified housing associations in a highly regulated and trusted market.
The supply imbalances in UK residential property have driven strong capital growth over the long term in conjunction with strong rental income profiles.
