Social housing law expert, Kate Dewar, presents her talk which she delivered at the Scottish Federation of Housing Association's Conference: Private Finance – where are we now?

Kate talks about alternative finance models, namely Social Housing Investment options. There are 3 recognised categories: Bonds Finance, Development Partnerships and Sales & Leaseback models.

For this talk Kate mainly focuses on the Bonds Finance model. She explores the issues from both the investor and social housing provider point of view and the key features of Bonds. She then draws some conclusions as to whether Bonds may be the answer to filling the current funding gap.
