with Brian Welsh, CEO of Nido Student

Andrew Teacher is joined by Brian Welsh, CEO of Nido Student to chat about the expansion of its institutional-grade management platform and why he sees greater investment heading towards residential real estate as investors chase defensive, structurally-supported returns.

The student accommodation sector has come under particular scrutiny when it comes to the measures it is putting in place to support residents through the Covid-19 lockdown.

Student living pioneer Nido has been rapidly adapting to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students, with its team working tirelessly to ensure its residents remain happy and healthy – both physically and mentally – throughout this unprecedented period

While Covid-19 has accelerated a digital movement, having everything online is something that Nido has been focused for the last few years, with its entire customer journey being digital. This means instant access to everything in a virtual environment – whether it’s for Skype tours, signing documentation or asking questions – which not only drives efficiency, but engages people in the way they’re naturally comfortable with.

Visit Property Week to find out more on how Nido is using technology to help students and keep the business going in a Q&A with chief executive Brian Welsh.
