Weekly data sheet: Investors flock to buy Segro long-term bond

A chance to invest in logistics specialist Segro - and receive a 5.125% return - saw the REIT’s senior unsecured bond issue almost six times oversubscribed.

 The 19-year, senior unsecured paper is Segro’s first Sterling bond issuance since 2017, and CFO Soumen Das commented that the £350 mln raised ‘provides valuable, long-duration liquidity to fund our development pipeline.’

Brookfield tied up the largest transaction of the week with its approximately SEK9.2 bn (€885 mln) in cash up front, plus up to circa SEK 1.2 bn in cash through earn-outs, to buy a stake of 49% in 585 Nordic educational properties from SBB.
Listed SBB has seen its value crash by 70% this year.  Brookfield made its move through its Infrastructure Partners fund.

Milan-based Coima led a €180 mln acquisition there, completing the purchase of the former Scalo di Porta Romana area. The Italian city’s real estate investment market has held up better than most this year.
