Institutional funded PRS – LINQ Housing

Winckworth Sherwood advised Genesis Housing Association as the seed investor of a new institutional PRS fund. The fund is designed to be scalable and to allow streamlined investment from all suppliers of PRS units for institutional take-out and long term fixed income investment. The fund will reduce investment costs to deliver the net return, which is so critical to this sector.
