Development criteria

Strict development criteria is applied to all new projects to ensure each development enhances bpha’s financial strength.

  • 35 year NPV and no terminal value
  • Conservative development assumptions applied
  • No capital appreciation assumed
  • Asset value generated for charging of security must normally be greater than net development cost so that overall balance sheet capacity is enhanced
  • IRR must achieve a hurdle rate set on basis of: long term cost of funds + margin + interest cover buffer + risk buffer
