What alternative property sectors are investors interested in?

During a year in which traditionally high-performing property sectors like office space, tourism and leisure have turned on their head, investors are taking a moment to reconsider their options. Will 2021 be the year that alternative residential property becomes the big opportunity, or will investors seek more stable commercial ventures?

Interview: Brian Welsh on the changing landscape of student housing

Brian Welsh is the Chief Executive Officer of Nido Student, Europe’s leading developer and operator of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA). As one of the sector’s leading experts in PBSA, we caught up with Brian to discuss the current state of the student housing sector and how it is being impacted as a result of the pandemic.

The winners and losers of lockdown?

Inevitably, as swift adjustments to lifestyles and working habits alter behaviour for the foreseeable future, some property markets are left pondering their options for diversification. We’re looking at which sectors are coming out on top and those that have seen the biggest hits since lockdown.

Charitable

LD Events actively supports a number of charitable and not for profit causes. Sectors of particular interest are Homelessness, organisations that offer opportunities to those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those which promote equality in the Property Sector. 


These include:

You Make It

You Make it empowers young unemployed women, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the confidence, skills, networks, knowledge, and experiences needed to realise their passions and pursue their goals. A holistic and uplifting approach to job seeking puts individuality and self-esteem at its core. This ensures that all women, regardless of background, have access to the same opportunities to lead happy, independent and fulfilled lives.


Women Talk Real Estate

Visibility brings about better business opportunities, challenges stereotypes and provides role models for upcoming generations.  Women Talk Real Estate is  a non profit organisation dedicated to increasing the visibility of women in the European real estate industry. 


Streets of London

Streets of London funds specialist support for people who are homeless in London, and raises awareness about homelessness. The charity puts on live events, including charity concerts which give music fans the opportunity to see big-name acts performing in intimate venues for a great cause. Ellie Goulding, Dan Smith (Bastille), Justin Young (The Vaccines) and Ralph McTell are the charity's ambassadors. These gigs have featured incredible line-ups, with special guest appearances from members of Bastille, Mumford & Sons and Years & Years, as well as artists including James Blunt, Craig David, Jess Glynne, George Ezra, Rudimental, Jessie Ware, John Newman, Tom Odell, Jack Garratt, Laura Mvula, Birdy, Kodaline and Kwabs.
