Civitas is now a constituent of several respected recommended lists of funds that meet strict ethical, ESG criteria. This reflects the leading role played by Civitas in ESG reporting within the social housing sector.
Recommendations - 2020
Civitas Social Housing PLC ("CSH") continues to be well received across a range of highly respected recommended lists for retail funds and investment companies. In September 2020, these included Bestinvest's 'Top Rated' investment companies list dan the Investors Chronicle's 'Top 100 Funds' list.
CSH is a new entrant and one of only four constituents in the property section of the Investors Chronicle 'Top 100 Funds' list. Dave Baxter, the publication's Deputy Personal Finance Editor, stated that the trust 'appeals both in terms if its social impact and returns' and whose income 'effectively has a level of government backing'.
The REIT represents the only specialist healthcare or residential trust to be included.
We are also pleased to announce that CSH remains a member of Bestinvest's 'Top-rated Funds' list. CSH is one of just three closed-ended property funds that are included in the highly regarded list.
