Build To Rent
BTR is purpose-built and therefore offers tenants a better rental experience through high quality professionally managed assets with facilities currently not on offer elsewhere. As an asset class it has low level volatility and is counter-cyclical therefore forming an integral part of the institutional investment portfolio diversification strategy. Optimisation of investor returns has been a key challenge with little comparable market evidence, therefore experience has been essential in analysing local demographics to determine viability of schemes. The long-term income profile of BTR has attracted significant investment ranging from sovereign wealth funds to local authority pension schemes.
