DFT to host filmed roundtable on the rise of PBSA

This week, Development Finance Today will be hosting its third filmed roundtable event in association with Watson Farley & Williams.

The invitation-only roundtable — which is supported by Aldermore — will be held on Friday 26th July at Watson Farley & Williams’ offices at 15 Appold Street, London.

The agenda will feature a discussion on the rise of purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) in the development sector.

Simon Knowles, head of property development at Aldermore, will be joined by Ranjeev Kumar, partner at Watson Farley & Williams.

Also in attendance will be two specialist finance brokers and two property developers: Chris Whitney at Enness, Tarek Jumah at Future Generation and Anthony Laville at Volume.Property. 

The roundtable will be chaired by Development Finance Today’s editor Beth Fisher. 

The attendees will also discuss what key challenges developers should be aware of in the PBSA market and how all parties in the transaction chain can help mitigate and resolve them, and whether the accessibility of finance has changed over the past few years for this type of scheme.

The 45-minute session will be filmed and published as a 10-minute highlights reel on Development Finance Today in early August on our brand new Roundtables page.

Development Finance Today will be continuing its series of filmed roundtable sessions in September and October 2019 and in February 2020.

If you are interested in getting involved with any of these events and would like to suggest topics, please contact Development Finance Today’s editor Beth Fisher at or on 0203 818 0165.
