The investment strategy is designed to satisfy investors’ growing requirements for high quality, safe, inflation protected income returns.
A striking feature of the UK real estate market over the past 20 years has been the significant reduction in income security caused by a marked decline in the average term to the first lease break or expiry. There are no other significant, established UK REITs specialising in long leases across a range of property sectors.
Through the Group’s tax efficient REIT status and its carefully managed and appropriately geared capital structure, the Board aims to produce attractive, growing and sustainable cash distributions to Shareholders. The Board has a firm intention to further grow its £1.77bn balanced portfolio of long term, secure income streams from real estate investments by investing across a range of property sectors, further diversifying risks across a wider range of property sectors, assets and tenant credits.
