A new class of property investment: Now overfunding

2 min read

Renting long-term is now the accepted norm for a large cohort of young professionals and new families, the Mill Residential REIT will provide good quality, private rented accommodation in attractive locations where there is a strong local demand.’
The Telegraph

Finally, you can hold buy to let in your pension, heres how.’
The Times


Launched less than two weeks ago, Mill Residential REIT (MRR) has smashed its target of £2.1 million and as a result the raise is now going into overfunding until closing in a matter of days. Why has it proved to be right up our members’ street?

As the first UK mainstream residential REIT set to float on the stock exchange before Christmas, MRR has received significant press coverage from The TelegraphThe Times, and The Financial Times, among others.

The Mill Residential REIT’s key financial targets are:
  • Initial Target Dividend – 3% dividend expected
  • Initial Target Total Shareholder Return – 10% plus (dependent on premium to NAV [net asset value] being established in market)
  • Under REIT rules 90% of rental profits are distributed every six months

Mill Group designed the REIT for investors wanting to gain exposure to the buy-to-let property market without taking on the risks and headaches of becoming landlords in a housing market where demand for quality, long-term rental property far exceeds the supply. The REIT also attracts shareholders looking for a tax-efficient, affordable and, once it’s listed, more liquid alternative to owning bricks and mortar.

The REIT may also be a smart alternative to get some property in your pension, and Mill Group are targetting investors using their pension fund via SIPPs or ISAs. If you would like any further details on how you can invest, please email

Closing soon; take a look to see if it’s REIT up your street’ too!
