Fraxtor has partnered with Q Investment Partners to offer investment opportunities in institutional-grade real estate assets which is managed by experienced asset managers. Q Investment Partners have developed over 2,000 purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) beds in the UK. Investments start from £20,000.

Through the Fraxtor platform – which uses MyInfo by GovTech to on-board clients digitally – clients can submit verified personal information using their SingPass, which is part of the account opening process.

“Fraxtor’s unique platform is a revolutionary way asset managers raise funds and manage their clients. Working with Fraxtor allows us to extend our reach to target a wider investor base, more importantly, democratise access into institutional-grade, alternative real estate opportunities. 

“The entire investment experience from client on-boarding to the subscription is digitally enabled through the platform, further enhancing value for our clients especially in such unprecedented times.”

Peter Young, CEO, Q Investment Partners 

The UK PBSA sector is favoured by institutional investors as it proved its resilience during the 2008 Global Financial crises and sustained student demands in 2019. The sector is one asset class that has recorded strong growth after the crisis – and looks to follow suit following the Covid-19 pandemic. Institutional investors – Allianz, and Far East and Singapore Press Holdings – have invested over £4bn since entering the UK PBSA market.

“We have chosen to partner with QIP because of their strong track record in UK PBSA. The QIP team and its principals have consistently returned mid-teen returns for their clients over the last 10 years in each and every UK PBSA project. 

“I believe that the structural undersupply and proven long term resilience of UK purpose-built student accommodation make it an extremely attractive and robust asset class. In particular, in light of the pandemic challenges, the business of UK Higher Education is expected to see through the immediate challenges faster than many other business sectors and remain strong in the medium and long term.”
