Investment in the UK’s living sectors is outpacing levels of last year. In the first quarter, funders committed £3.9bn to build-to-rent, student, later living and healthcare, exceeding 2021’s average quarterly investment of £3.4bn.
Funders backed 9,400 new build-to-rent homes, 12,300 student beds and 5,600 care home beds and later living homes.
BTR investment climbed by 50% with £1.7bn in deals agreed in the first quarter. The co-living sector continues to expand, rising to 32,000 beds at the end of the quarter. In student, big ticket portfolio deals for operating assets continue to dominate. And global M&A and portfolio pushed usually high care home investment during the quarter.
