Investing in housing in the UK to deliver the potential for long-term secure income and positive impact
Gresham House offers long term equity investments into UK housing, through listed and unlisted investment vehicles, focused on addressing different areas of the affordable housing problem in the UK.
Our investments aim to provide affordable tenure opportunities alongside sustainable long-term income for investors, whilst encouraging placemaking and community development.
Each of our UK residential housing funds offers the potential for stable, secured inflation-linked returns whilst providing social and environmental benefits to our residents, the local community and the wider economy.
Our funds invest through two Registered Providers of Social Housing – ReSI Housing Limited and ReSI Homes Limited.
These companies are required to hold regulated affordable housing assets and therefore are managed with the highest standards of governance, financial viability and resident welfare.
Our UK housing investment team has a proven 20-year track record in housing, with certain individuals having over 40 years’ experience.
We have expertise across all residential asset classes, including shared ownership, retirement, affordable, social and market rented homes, offering supreme access to opportunities across the sector.
Regardless of the economic environment, people need good quality homes.
The UK has a well-documented shortage of affordable housing, caused by a combination of demographic trends and historic undersupply. In England, just 50,000 affordable homes are being delivered each year, representing a third of the 145,000 required.
To address this shortage, patient capital is required by a range of housing developers, including volume house builders, small regional developers, housing associations and local authorities.
We seek to meet this demand and therefore accelerate the development of socially, environmentally and economically beneficial new housing. Our commitment to the sector provides the potential for us to make a meaningful contribution to the UK’s shortage of affordable, accessible housing.
Our funds are investment and strategic partners of Homes England and the Greater London Authority for delivery of new affordable homes. Each provide financial grants for every new home and support our vision to improve communities and deliver homes that create a balanced social impact.
Housing investments benefit from substantial asset-backing and provide investors with the potential for attractive long-term returns, offering:
➕ A secure and sustainable rental stream from individual residents, diversified by location, property (houses, apartments) and resident type
➕ Inflation-linked income
➕ Diversification versus commercial real estate, infrastructure and other traditional asset classes
➕ Potential for long term capital appreciation in excess of inflation
➕ Low volatility, in many cases, through below-market rents
Our investment strategy focus includes affordable housing (shared ownership, affordable and private rented), retirement and temporary accommodation.
Investors can access Gresham House’s UK Housing equity investment opportunities via our listed housing vehicle, Residential Secure Income plc through Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes (UCIS), or via co-investment opportunities.
