We have been investing in the rental housing sector since 2005, and have overseen investments in multi-family, student housing, and senior living valued in excess of $4.1 billion.

Student Purpose-Built

We believe that the US student housing market serving tier-1 public universities is poised to experience healthy growth over the long term. This is supported by strong enrollment levels at public universities given their competitive tuition fees, increased institutional investment in student housing properties, and an increasingly limited supply of undeveloped land in proximity to established campuses, which collectively drive occupancy and rent growth.


Long-term US household formation and savings rates are resulting in increasing permanent renters. Within sub-markets with favorable job growth and housing legislation, we see significant opportunities to generate sustainable risk-adjusted cash flows, driven by the following:

(i)   favorable millennial and post millennial demographics;
(ii)  lower affordability of US home ownership;
(iii) declining savings amongst median income households
(iv) delayed household formation
