Investors pile into student housing

houses

Pension funds and private equity firms are investing rapidly in student housing with expectations of reaching £3.3bn for this year's Jan to March quarter. The amount is said to be 3.5 times more then spent in last year's same time period, and equates to double the £1.7bn spent in the whole 12 months of 2014. Chairman of the alternative investment group at real estate group JLL, Philip Hillman, said: 'Student housing continues to be an attractive proposition for investors, with the UK market proving to be increasingly popular with both UK and international investors and institutions'. A reported 22,000 beds changed landlords in just five deals this year including the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board's £1.1bn acquisition of Brandeaux Student Accommodation Fund's Liberty Living portfolio.
