GCP Student Living PLC was established in February 2013. The company operates in the financials sector but with a particular focus on the real estate industry. GCP Student Living has its head offices in London, the United Kingdom. The company joined the London Stock Exchange later in 2013 through an IPO. GCP is the first LSE-listed Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) that focuses on student accommodation.
The company has two primary investment objectives. First, to achieve long-term, regular, and sustainable capital appreciation for the shareholders. Second, to provide largescale, dependable, and affordable accommodation for students with London, the United Kingdom. The company trades with DIGS as its stock symbol, and it is part of the FTSE 250 index.
All of GCP’s investments are closed-ended. Gravis Capital Management Ltd. is the investment manager in charge of GCP’s assets. Nick Barker and Tom Ward are the lead managers of Gravis Capital.
