GCP Student Living
Buchanan has provided constant support and counsel across all aspects of our financial communications strategy since helping us to launch the fund in 2013. The media coverage that Buchanan achieved definitely increased demand for the IPO and the team’s in-depth knowledge of the investment fund sector has been of great benefit to us when shaping key messages across our target audiences. The work that Buchanan has done, particularly in conjunction with fundraisers, has been very well respected by everyone at GCP.
Tom Ward - Lead Partner, GCP Student Living
GCP Student Living was the first student accommodation REIT in the UK, listing in May 2013 to invest in modern, purpose-built student accommodation with a target total return of 8-10%.
Buchanan successfully supported the fund through its initial Placing and Offer for Subscription and has led GCP Student Living’s ongoing communications strategy since then. Our aim has been to raise the profile of the fund not only amongst the financial and investment media but also across the IFA and wealth management media as well as the sell side research community, highlighting the fund’s attractive fundamentals and returns.
In addition to managing the successful profile raising programme, Buchanan has advised on the fund’s subsequent capital raises and asset purchases.
