Il mercato degli immobili per studenti non ha subito flessioni, con un aumento del 17 per cento quest'anno. In particolare fondi provenienti da Singapore hanno portato nell'ultimo anno 1.2 bilioni di sterline nel settore. Savills prevede che lo stesso aumenterá ancora di 6 punti percentuali, ma solo se nelle negoziazioni Brexit gli studenti verranno esclusi dai target di immigrazione.
Brexit fears appear to have had little impact on investment in student accommodation in the UK with levels increasing by 17pc this year, according to Savills. £5.3bn is expected to be sunk into purpose-built student accommodation in 2017, compared to £4.5bn last year and a record £6bn in 2015. The sector was particularly boosted by international investors, who increased their market share to 64pc last year from 35pc in 2015. This asset class is particularly favoured by investors from the Far East. The jump in international investment was due partly to the an influx of money from Singapore, such as from the country’s sovereign wealth fund GIC and real estate developer Mapletree, which spent almost £1.2bn on UK student housing last year.
