Matter Real Estate (“Matter”) today announces that it has invested in Auxesia Homes (“Auxesia” or “the company”), a registered provider of affordable housing based in Cheshire, England. The investment builds on Matter’s UK residential strategy, focusing on value-add and opportunistic real estate across evolving sectors, and complements its existing investments in Placefirst and St Arthur Homes. As part of their strategic partnership, Cordia, an international property investor, has co-invested alongside Matter on this transaction.
Auxesia provides new, affordable homes to current and former military personnel, NHS, and emergency service workers. The company works closely with housebuilders and local authorities to deliver high-quality housing across the north of England, offering shared ownership, affordable rental and rent-to-buy homes.
Auxesia has a strong track record of acquiring and managing homes for itself and on behalf of institutional investors. With Matter’s backing, the company will scale its portfolio to over 1,300 homes within the next five years, helping to address the critical shortage of affordable housing for the key workers it serves.
Alongside its financial investment, Matter will work closely with Auxesia’s management team to build a best-in-class operating platform and facilitate collaboration with other investee companies, including Placefirst, to offer multi-tenure solutions to affordable and attainable housing sites.
Cordia has teamed up with Matter Real Estate on multiple transactions in recent months. The investment into Auxesia is the latest in a number of collaborations between the two companies, which also includes an investment in St. Arthur Homes, an owner and operator of social housing with a focus on shared ownership. Cordia is also participating in Matter’s Real Asset Fund I which backs developers in the UK and Ireland via structured capital investments.
