At IHS, we take a strategic approach to investing in affordable housing that is tailored to local market conditions. We focus on identifying areas where there is rapid growth in housing demand that is not being met by existing supply. Our investment strategy takes into account both economic and political conditions, with a focus on areas that are supportive of development and private market investments.
Our commitment to partnering with local companies enables us to leverage existing capacity while minimizing investment risk. By building organizational strength among local housing market participants, we aim to pave the way for further economic growth and foster international partnerships.
We take a diversified approach to our investments, both in terms of geographic regions and product types. Our goal is to go beyond simply building housing units and create sustainable communities through our mixed-income and mixed-use development model. By creating vibrant, inclusive communities, we can help drive economic growth and improve the quality of life for all residents.
At IHS, we take a long-term approach to property investments, with typical individual investments lasting between five and seven years. Our investment strategy is designed to align with the maturity of the investment vehicle, ensuring that all investments are fully exited by its end-term.
We focus on investing in markets where there is a significant shortage of developed homes and a strong demand for affordable housing. The residential real estate market in South Africa and our target countries in Sub-Saharan Africa support investment dispositions, driven by robust sales or listing of rental portfolios. We remain vigilant in monitoring market trends and adjusting our investment strategy accordingly to ensure that we maximize returns while also meeting the needs of the communities we serve.
