WE ARE PART OF THE TRANSFORMATION OF BRICKS AND MORTAR ASSETS INTO AN ENGINE OF CHANGE – TRANSFORMING LIVING
Huge changes are manifesting themselves in 2020. Limited-edition luxury senior living is becoming the attainable amenity- rich aspiration for a much wider age and social demographic. Student living is becoming a tech rich sophisticated asset class sign posting both the challenges and benefits of a future of co- living and remote working. Affordable housing and the funding underpinning it is leading the way showcasing how green finance can drive sustainability. And PRS is being cited as the asset class to solve both the excess retail space dilemma and the housing gap
These modifications leave us with many questions: Are they being driven by COVID- 19 or by a better appreciation of the spectrum of the Living Sector both as an asset class and infrastructure of fundamental importance to the economy and the wellbeing of it citizens? To what extent has COVID-19 killed communal living? What are the immediate and long-term perspectives of equity and debt investment across the Living Sector?
