Embattled student property fund aborts £1bn IPO

Embattled student property fund aborts £1bn IPO

The Brandeaux Student Accommodation fund has backtracked on plans to float its portfolio.

The fund had said at the start of June that it would float its £1.1 billion portfolio in a bid to meet investors’ demand for redemptions.

It planned to float its portfolio of student accommodation by listing a subsidiary company Liberty Living, but last week announced that it would no longer press ahead with the initial public offering (IPO).

It told the market: ‘This decision has been reached due to adverse public market conditions and despite a positive response to the company and its underlying portfolio from prospective investors.’

'The outlook for Liberty Living's business remains very positive, with current reservation levels of 90% for the 2014/2015 academic year, and its operations remain unaffected by the decision not to proceed with an IPO.'
