Yes, a vote of confidence from Holland: htTps://www.apg.nl/en/asset-management/the-investment-process 'We don’t just look at risk and return, we also look at what a company does about the environment, working conditions, diversity and human rights. Wherever possible we exercise our influence as shareholders. We’re regarded worldwide as exemplary active investors. Ultimately, we also aim to contribute through our investments to the U.N.’s sustainable development goals or SDGs. One of those goals goes straight to the core of our work: ending poverty. In essence that’s what pensions are all about: they’re there to prevent poverty. Pensions enable people to continue to lead a normal life after their working life. In the Netherlands there’s plenty of moaning about pensions, but along with Luxembourg, the Netherlands has the lowest poverty rate among the elderly.’ htTps://www.apg.nl/en/publication/Jaarverslag-APG-2019/1174

You could be right but what about students who need to work in labs. My son is just finishing his phd at Trinity - his chemistry lab is closed but they are talking about reopening. Cambridge have also said they could have face to face meetings but in small tutorial groups. All ifs and buts at the moment but I think a lot will change come September / October. Suet

Suetballs interesting thought, do you think students will move into £10k year+ accom to escape mum and dad to study virtually and not be able to really integrate with other students or attend lectures? I can’t see it and if Cambridge say online only I would think they are closing accommodation blocks on site.

Unless social distancing rules change (and I think they will) Cambridge Uni will conduct all lectures online until Summer of 2021. Impact of this type of decision on digs? Maybe not so much - students will still want the campus experience and getting away from mum and dad. Suet

A very informative and comprehensive update. There is obviously disruption with CV but I am hopeful that by start of the next academic year the situation will be much improved. And a dividend too. Suet

H1 results: https://www.investegate.co.uk/gcp-student-living--digs-/rns/half-year-report/202003060700041924F/ Covers just numbers to 31/12, so a bit out of date for covi reaction. They say: Further, the Board and the Investment Manager are monitoring the potential impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak both in terms of the ability of students to attend their universities, and therefore occupy student rooms, and in terms of the wellbeing of the residents in the Company's buildings. The Board notes that, at the date of publication, bookings for the forthcoming year are in line with 2019/20 and residents for the current academic year continue to occupy their rooms. Student applications for full time higher education for the 2020/21 academic year have increased by 1.2% year-on-year. Once the UK spread becomes epidemic with maybe 50% infection, it makes no sense to limit overseas student numbers!

Trading update: NAV: on 31 December 2019, the unaudited estimated EPRA net asset value per ordinary share of the Company was 174.71 pence. The EPRA net asset value includes income for the period (cum-income) and does not include a provision for an accrued dividend for the quarter to 31 December 2019. DIV: first interim dividend of 1.58 pence per ordinary share, in respect of the quarter ended 31 December 2019. The dividend will be paid on 9 March 2020 to ordinary shareholders on the register at 14 February 2020. The dividend will be paid as 1.42 pence per ordinary share as a REIT property income distribution ("PID") in respect of the Group's tax-exempt property rental business and 0.16 pence per ordinary share as an ordinary UK dividend ("non-PID") Rest of it good, full occupation, but they don't say whether the div will be fully-covered. NAV premium nearly 18%. Gosh!

Thanks jonwig Bit disapppointed that if it's a request for share issue, it has to be done at a discount, but realistically the price must have been surging as details of the deal were being worked. On the positive side, if it's a pension fund, it's not likely to be an organisation that flips the shares for a small profit

Another placing! https://www.investegate.co.uk/gcp-student-living/rns/proposed-placing/201912190700084033X/ It looks as though this was requested by one particular investor, so shouldn't flop, like the last one. They'll also get the next dividend without having earned it.

The Govt now is aiming to increase the number of International Students to 600k from the current 450k over the next 10 years. hTTps://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/sep/11/uk-work-visas-for-foreign-students-all-you-need-to-know On the basis that PBSA beds are being built at a rate of 25,000 per year - and UK demand is still rising - it appears that the under-supply that supports rental growth is likely to be maintained.

Excellent news today for all UK Universities and Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) providers. The Govt is to change the rules to now allow foreign students studying in the UK to stay-on to work for a further two years unrestricted. There are currently 450k international students in the UK. This move will undoubtedly boost numbers as the UK has been far less attractive than other top destinations, specifically Australia and US, that already allow students to stay-on to work. This thankfully reverses the disastrous bone-headed approach introduced by Theresa May as Home Secretary to require students to leave after 4 months. May saw students as a soft target to hit her hopeless immigration targets - despite the hard evidence that very few were over-stayers. This move applies to all trusted higher education providers and will thus exclude the dodgy language schools that were flouting the immigration rules. hTTps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49655719 Regards, Maddox
