The company has achieved good progress since its London Stock Exchange (LSE) listing in July 2018. Results for the half-year ended 31 December (released 14 February) showed gross rental income +25.9% year-on-year and group loan-to-value down to 43.4% (full-year to June 2018: 51.4%). Furthermore, the ratio of administration costs to asset value was reduced to 1.3% from 1.4%. We believe this can go below 1% as the portfolio continues to grow.
