BFY Group, leading management consultants in UK Utilities, acted as the lead energy advisors throughout the process as LDC makes a minority investment in market-leading student accommodation advertising platform, UniHomes.
UniHomes, based in Sheffield and operating in 41 locations nationwide, helps students by connecting them with thousands of student properties offering all-inclusive living. Part of the Lloyds Banking Group, LDC have over 40 years of investment partner experience as shareholders.
UniHomes’ simple all-inclusive offer for students sees them successfully interface with a complex regulated energy industry, saving students from the hassles of setting up and managing multiple accounts for their utilities. BFY Group provided advice across the customer journeys, commercial arrangements, energy price scenarios, and regulatory risk management.
BFY Group would like to congratulate both parties, on what we’re confident will be a successful relationship.
With both leading in their own fields, the partnership between LDC and UniHomes promises to be highly successful, accelerating UniHomes’ ongoing growth in the all-inclusive student accommodation market. We are delighted to have advised on the complex energy implications of this expansion, helping to facilitate a continued seamless experience for students in UniHomes properties.
