Beds investment bedding down 

It may be too early to predict the new normal for real estate allocations post COVID-19, but the beds sector is on the up. Allocations to residential and its close relations were already growing before the virus hit, and anecdotal evidence suggests that interest in the sector has accelerated further since then. Residential was the second most favoured sector in the INREV Investment Intentions survey for 2020, equal with industrial/logistics and just behind offices, while the survey also shows student accommodation real estate coming increasingly into investors’ consideration.
