USS is a long-term investor in property with a focus on income and strong property fundamentals. We prefer direct ownership and freeholds, while indirect investments will be considered in specialist sectors or where there is particular management expertise. A particular area of focus is on acquiring indexed linked assets with 10 year plus leases.
We see great potential to add value through proactive asset management and welcome the chance to work in partnership with like-minded investors.
Our approach is underscored by our Responsible Property Investment (RPI) policies, which ensure that the environmental impacts generated by our property investment activities is minimal.
The shape of our property portfolio:
Retail and Leisure
High street shops
