“The UK has a chronic shortage of housing. Today’s investment and our future plans for the PRS should help address the structural issues which have contributed to the shortage. We view investments over 30 or more years and are using our long term capital to change the way the UK housing market is financed. This will be the first of many PRS deals for LGC”
