Westbrooke Stac Preferred is the next phase in the evolution of Westbrooke’s successful c.R900 million Westbrooke Stac investment strategy. In the context of a challenging economic climate, Westbrooke Stac Preferred is a fully tax-deductible investment which seeks to reduce risk and enhance alignment by investing in a preferred position in the student accommodation equity capital stack. This is achieved by co-investing alongside experienced, reputable student accommodation operators into a portfolio of geared property-backed student accommodation operations situated in strategically located student nodes across South Africa, in transactions whereby investor capital ranks ahead of that of our partners. Westbrooke Stac Preferred aims to provide investors with a return of c.15% per annum (after fees and investor exit taxes).


Westbrooke Stac Preferred is only available through the fully paid B Share class, which requires investors to pay 100% of their subscription amount prior to the 30 June 2021 sunset date. No up-front fees are applicable and investors enjoy full economic entitlements on their investment from 1 July 2021.
