Investment summary

Primary Health Properties (PHP) recently held a capital markets day in the Republic of Ireland (RoI), where it now has eight assets and looks for further strong growth, towards 10% of the overall portfolio. The RoI market shares similar drivers and attractive characteristics to the UK and currently benefits from higher yields and lower funding costs. The visit provided additional comfort to our forecasts for further income and dividend growth driven by asset acquisition in both the UK and RoI, an improving outlook for rental growth and more opportunities to optimise average borrowing costs.

Industry outlook

Healthcare planning, with broad political support, suggests strong underlying demand for modern healthcare properties in both the UK and the Republic of Ireland. In addition to providing investment opportunities, this seems likely to support rental growth.
