Unlocking investment - emerging funding solutions for new affordable housing

Hear direct from five leading companies looking to invest billions in the UK's affordable housing sector.

The pressure is on to build more homes. But with funding from government at a premium, housing associations and local authorities are seeking new solutions to kickstart development programmes.

Much has been made of the new housing finance models entering the market but behind the headlines what do these companies actually do and how can they help social housing providers deliver the homes we so desperately need?

In November, HQN is bringing together five of the leading players in the affordable housing investment market for a unique event where delegates will have an opportunity to:

  • Hear exactly how the different funding models work
  • Compare and contrast their offers
  • Talk direct to key people.

The companies speaking at the event will be:

  • Cheyne Capital
  • Heylo
  • 3H York
  • Resonance
  • Civitas.
