Quote from the Chair, Stephen Smith

 

"We are pleased to see that, as expected, the portfolio has continued to perform strongly and in line with expectations, with no disruption to loan interests and capital repayments despite the turmoil caused by Covid-19. This performance reflects the high quality of our portfolio assets and the counterparties to which we lend.   Our Investment Manager's expertise in originating, executing and managing a diverse portfolio of high quality real estate debt, backed by the scale and networks of Starwood Capital Group means that we can maintain an active pipeline of highly attractive opportunities to choose from. We are delighted to reiterate the annual dividend target of 5.5 pence, a yield of 5.9 per cent on the quarter closing share price. While the discount has narrowed in recent weeks the Board, the Investment Manager and Investment Adviser continue to believe that the shares represent very attractive value at the current share price."
