Interim BTR Forum 2023


Build to Rent and Housing Policy – finding the right balance

Venue: Canary Wharf Group, Level 39, One Canada Square, London, E14 5AB

Build to Rent has grown over the past decade with over £6bn investment in 2022, however the sector is facing challenges. These include the increased cost of debt and the movement of investment yields and construction cost inflation, which are impacting the viability of developments. How this affects renters – families, and particularly those struggling on low income, is also understandably influencing political thinking and future housing policy.

So how do we find the right balance? 

This half day forum focuses on rented homes – and will discuss where Build to Rent fits into the housing mix, the rage of emerging products, what it broadly delivers to both renters and the wider community, and it will explore its affordability and benefits.

There will also be a discussion on housing policy and the balance between the importance of protecting renters’ the long-term needs and security against the need to ensure that Build to Rent remains attractive to investors.

The forum will include keynotes, presentations, case studies and panel sessions, delivered by leaders in Build to Rent and the Public Housing sector. The event will explore how the interests of both parties can be aligned to deliver more rented homes and better choices for those who need them.

Speakers include Way of Life, Quintain, Vertus, Cortland, JLL, PfP Capital, Get Living, Greystar, Godwin Group and more.

This will be an authoritative conference aimed at individuals who are actively involved in the Build to Rent sector and Housing in general.

Wednesday 10 May
13:30 — 19:30 (6h)
