Notes to Editors:
Aberdeen Standard European Logistics Income PLC is a UK investment trust with a premium listing on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange. The Company invests in European logistics real estate to achieve its objective of providing its shareholders with a regular and attractive level of income return together with the potential for long term income and capital growth. The Company aims to invest in a portfolio of assets diversified by both geography and tenant throughout Europe, predominantly targeting well-located assets at established distribution hubs and within population centres.
The European logistics market is large and growing with tenant demand being driven by rapid growth in e-commerce across Europe, supply chain reconfiguration amongst existing operators and increased globalisation of traded goods. This trend is creating demand for high quality modern 'big box' logistics facilities from emerging e-commerce businesses, traditional retailers and manufacturers upgrading their distribution capabilities and the third party logistics operators servicing the sector.
The Company launched on 15 December 2017 raising gross proceeds of £187.5m and to date has announced signed agreements committing capital to purchase five assets totalling over €139 million with negotiations ongoing to acquire further properties representing further investment of approximately €70 million.
Portfolio management services are undertaken by Aberdeen Asset Managers Limited.
