A wider range of private funding solutions is needed for RPs wishing to drive forward development programmes. Although circa £8 billion of new bonds has been issued in the past two years alone, many RPs are looking at other avenues to raise capital.

Luke Cross, editor, Social Housing magazine, in partnership with JLL, is hosting a round table discussion looking at the attitudes and opinions of Registered Providers and finance professionals on affordable housing investment, specifically inflation-linked income strips, or leaseback structures.
