RESI Awards 2015

The annual RESI Awards, organised by Property Week, took place last week. Celebrating the UK residential property market and its successes, the evening was hosted by Alexander Armstrong at Grosvenor House in London.

Following awards night ASK4 Sales Manager, Chris Ellis, commented:

Everyone was in a buoyant mood after an impressive 12 months for the residential property market. For ASK4 Broadband, the explosive growth in the UK private rental sector meant an increased demand for managed internet services, all within a sector that has previously been overshadowed by the investor-favoured student accommodation market.

The 'Student Operator of the Year' award was hotly contended with 7 of the 8 shortlisted being ASK4 Broadband clients - demonstrating that specialist management is required for the provision of this essential utility. With massive investor interest, unprecedented transaction levels, some of the biggest UK portfolios changing hands and new ones being formed through consolidation, student accommodation has truly moved from a niche investment to become a core asset for fund managers.

A summary of the event, list of winners and gallery can be found on the RESI Awards website.
