We are pleased to announce that MTN Funding plc, a specialist UK based issuer of structured products, for which Truva acts as trustee, is providing funding for a new €30 million student accommodation development in Porto, Portugal. The development is a partnership between BigCity and Reditum Capital. 

BigCity is a development, investment and property management company specialising in student and co-living accommodation across Europe and Reditum Capital is a leading specialist global financier offering bespoke asset-backed financing solutions. 

The two companies have agreed joint venture funding for the development of BigCity Asprela, a €30 million student accommodation facility in Porto’s main university district.  

The joint venture funding marks the partners’ first entry into Portugal, a country characterised by a highly fragmented purpose-built student accommodation market with a significant supply-demand imbalance. 

Alper Deniz, CEO Truva Trustee comments, “Truva’s relationship with Reditum Capital stretches back several years and we were very pleased to see MTN Funding plc, a specialist UK based issuer of structured products and for which Truva acts as trustee, provide funding for this very exciting new development in Porto.”
