The 2015 Student Accommodation Annual Report provides a unique insight into the trends in demand, supply and investment during the sector’s most active year to date.
Investment in the UK student accommodation sector has soared to a record £4.5bn in 2015 and could reach £6bn by the end of the year, according to analysis by Cushman & Wakefield.
Portfolio sales have driven investment activity far beyond the £2.7bn registered in 2014, with sales triggered by a range of factors including distress, profit taking and portfolio reconstruction. The most significant portfolio deal was Canada Pension Plan Investment Board’s £1.1bn purchase of the 16,748 bed Brandeaux / Liberty Living Portfolio. International capital has accounted for 82% of all transactions.
