Shed load of growth to come


Urban Logistics REIT (SHED) is pressing ahead with its ambitious growth strategy, having raised £108.3m in a placing of shares in July 2021. This is the third successful capital raise it has made during the pandemic (totalling £336.7m), highlighting the strength and resilience of its investment proposition. SHED is the only listed company focused solely on the urban logistics sub-sector, which is benefitting from a surge in demand for space from e-commerce operators, as online retailing rates accelerate and are faced with a chronic lack of supply of property.


SHED's manager, led by Richard Moffitt, has an active asset management approach whereby it can impact the portfolio's value through lease re-gears (beneficial renegotiations of leases for existing tenants) and new lettings, meaning it is less reliant on market conditions. The majority of SHED's assets are acquired off-market (sourced through contacts rather than through formal bidding processes), which is testament to the manager's reputation and skillset - especially with the logistics investment market being so hot right now.

The company has reached a size that justifies a move from the AIM market to a premium listing on the main market of the London Stock Exchange, which should happen in the near future and increase liquidity in its shares.
