Why Invest In Natex?
Natex is a 566 unit student scheme with two 10 and 16 story-high blocks, comprising 472 clusters and 94 studio apartments. The scheme is located in the heart of Liverpool, just a 5 minute walk away from the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University. Strong demand is expected from all students, especially postgraduates and overseas students.
Below are five reasons why you should consider investing in Natex.
By purchasing now property buyers can secure a rental agreement with the developer that will provide a rental assurance of 9% net for 5 years. This is one of the main attractions of student property investment as such returns are difficult to achieve with traditional buy-to-let residential property.
According to official UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) figures, 82,705 applications were made to higher education institutions in Liverpool for the academic year starting in September 2018, of which 14,155 were accepted, showing substantial demand for education in Liverpool as a whole.
The number of beds provided by a combination of the Halls of Residence and the private sector schemes totals 27,705. This represents 54.8% of the total student population and means that 22,809 students (45.15%) are unable to access university or private sector accommodation. If the consented pipeline of development comprising 3,999 bed spaces were to be completed, 18,810 (37.23%) full time students would still be unable to access accommodation, according to Knight Frank & UCAS 2019.
Natex is close to both The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University, between the two institutions there are approximately 45,000 full time students who want to be near supermarkets, nightlife and their educational establishment, whilst living in a safe and sociable environment.
You can learn more about the key advantages of investing into purpose build student accommodation here, but to put it simply: investors in Natex will benefit from lower SDLT rates, a fully managed, passive income for the first 5 years, and no furniture pack costs.
Plus, by partnering with Track Capital investors do not pay any administration or sourcing fees.
It’s really important for developers to ensure their scheme stands out and attracts tenants. Natex has plenty of features which differentiate it from other projects, such as a communal courtyard, lounge, laundry room, conference room, cafe, gym and games room.
Student accommodation attracts investors from all over the globe and Natex is a prime example with over 90% of the units already sold. This is no surprise, it is a premium student scheme in the centre of Liverpool offering fixed income of 9% for 5 years and strong long term prospects for investors.
In 2019, investors placed £3.1 billion in UK student accommodation according to data from Savills. They stated student accommodation is “the most mature and liquid of the operational property markets in the UK”.
Plans to invest £1bn into expanding Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter are set to create a 1.8million sq ft science, health & technology hub. This will attract world class companies and reinforce the city’s reputation as a global leader.
The expansion is also expected to be a major draw for international students, adding to the city’s already high population of international students.
According to UCAS, there are 50,000 students in the city, whilst the Knight Frank 2019 Student Accommodation Report stated over 82,000 applications were made to higher education institutions in Liverpool (only 14,155 were accepted).
All in all, the city will have significant tenant demand for the foreseeable future.

What does Nick, our Founder and Director, think of Natex?
“Student accommodation is now a fundamental asset class in the UK property investment market.
Institutions and everyday investors have been able to generate higher than average yields investing in the UK’s university cities. One of the leading lights for this model is Liverpool, with Natex a prime example of a strong investment opportunity.
There are a range of benefits to investors, including lucrative, fixed yields for a long timeframe, lack of tax exposure, significant demand, a fully managed hassle free structure, and of course low entry levels costs.
However, Natex takes this one step further with an ultra-convenient location and high-spec facilities, which will see significant demand from Liverpool’s 50,000 plus students”.
