NewRiver will be appointed as asset manager, in return for a management fee calculated with reference to the gross rental income of the asset, and will also receive a promote based on financial performance.


The gross asset value subject to the transaction is £44.7 million and NewRiver's share of the transaction will be satisfied from existing resources and available credit facilities.


Including this acquisition, the JV established in May 2019 has acquired £105.1 million of assets (NRR share: £34.7 million), reflecting a net initial yield of 9.0%.
