Standard Life Investments Property Income : SLI

Standard Life Investments Property Income aims to provide an attractive level of income, along with the prospect of income and capital growth, by investing in a diversified UK commercial property portfolio.

Standard Life Investments Property Income is registered in Guernsey and invests in the three principal commercial property sectors: office, retail (including leisure) and industrial. It may also invest up to 10% in other commercial property and undertake property development (including speculative property development) up to 10% of gross assets. The Company can invest up to 10% in indirect property vehicles or funds but will not invest in other listed investment companies or investment trusts. SLI uses gearing with the aim of enhancing returns; the board’s intention is that SLI’s loan-to-value ratio (LTV) will not exceed 45%.

We have written a note that explains how the fund works –
