In the student hall sector, the US firm wants to invest €200 million in the creation of 2,000 beds by 2022 and expand its presence from Madrid, Barcelona and Málaga, to other student towns.

Meanwhile, in the rental home sector, the US company already operates in ten countries around the world, where it administers more than 500,000 homes. In Spain, it plans to launch this business before the end of 2019.
