IPE Real Assets’ first magazine of the new year featured a very interesting article looking at the influx of institutional investors who were moving into the affordable housing sector.

Previously propped up through housing authorities or government agencies, Christopher Walker’s article looked at how this new investment can help deliver much needed housing whilst at the same time generate good returns for investors.

We helped secure commentary spots for Alex Greaves and Chris Jeffs from M&G Real Estate who were able to discuss their Shared Ownership Fund and how the sector has multiple attractions of offering index-linked-type returns, exposure to rising house prices, and a social impact contribution.

It also highlighted how M&G were partnering with housing associations to help provide much-needed funding for homes which are allowing more people to get onto the housing ladder.
