In Build to Rent, LGC works closely with LGIM who have raised significant pension fund capital for an open-ended BTR fund, creating a pipeline of attractive, high quality assets for its customers, and offering flexibility and security of tenure to renters. It now has over 5,000 homes completed, in planning or under development, across fourteen BTR schemes. In affordable housing, LGC has a secured pipeline of 3,500 homes across the UK.
 
Jasan has been employed by LGC since July 2018, when he joined from CALA Group.

Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of Principal Investment at Legal & General Capital, says: ‘The VC ecosystem is growing strongly in the UK. Forming an increasingly important part of the UK economy, start-ups and scale-ups continue to transform entire industries, generating strong returns and revolutionising the way we live, work and play. Legal & General has committed capital to continue to support these businesses through existing Venture Capital managers. We also continue to see compelling opportunities to invest in the Build to Rent and Affordable Housing sectors.’
