The Company invests in social housing assets in the UK, with a particular focus on supported housing. The assets within the portfolio will typically be subject to inflation-adjusted, long-term (from 20 years to 25 years), Fully Repairing and Insuring ("FRI") leases with Registered Providers. The portfolio will comprise investments into properties which are already subject to an FRI lease with a Housing Association, Local Authority or other regulated organisation, as well as forward funding of pre-let developments but will not include any direct development or speculative development.


There is increasing political and financial pressure on Housing Associations to increase their housing delivery and this is creating opportunities for private sector investors to participate in the market. The Group's ability to provide forward financing for new developments not only enables the Company to secure fit for purpose, modern assets for its portfolio but also addresses the chronic undersupply of suitable supported housing properties in the UK at sustainable rents and delivering returns to investors.


Triple Point Investment Management LLP (part of the Triple Point Group) is responsible for management of the Group's portfolio (with such functions having been delegated to it by Langham Hall Fund Management LLP, the Company's alternative investment fund manager).


The Company was admitted to trading on the Specialist Fund Segment of the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange on 8 August 2017 and operates as a UK Real Estate Investment Trust.
