Institutional Investment in London’s Market Rented Sector

This special interest paper, prepared for the City of London Corporation by Centre for London, looks at the potential of promoting greater institutional investment in the rented housing sector in London.

The paper reviews the case for promoting increased institutional investment in London’s market rented sector, analyses some of the challenges currently faced by potential investors in the rented housing sector, and sets out ways that key public and private sector players could work together to increase investor uptake.

Sections of this special interest paper were based on a roundtable discussion, hosted by the City of London in November 2012.
