Europa Generation Student Fund

Europa Generation’s  objective is to assemble and manage a geographically diverse portfolio of 5,000 to 10,000 beds comprising well-located, high quality PBSA assets in strong university towns and cities across the United Kingdom. The primary aim is to provide investors with long term, regular, sustainable and growing income distributions, together with capital appreciation over the life of the Fund.

Investment Strategy

Europa Generation will target assets located in university cities and towns which demonstrate some or all of the following characteristics:

  • More than one university to diversify the demand pool
  • Are expected to show sustained growth in student numbers
  • An existing and projected favourable demand/supply imbalance
  • A high or rising concentration of international students
  • Tight planning policy in relation to student accommodation or other barriers to entry that serve to reduce risk of future oversupply
  • An ageing existing PBSA provision
  • A strong residential market.

The above characteristics do not limit the investment horizon to any particular group of universities but the portfolio as a whole will be naturally weighted to stronger and more successful academic institutions.
