Data centres are growing as an emerging asset class, with dynamic characteristics that are attracting investors. According to CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm which has launched a speciality brokerage focused on data centres, more than $12bn was invested into North American data centres in 2018 alone.
According to The Hindu Business Line, India is on the verge of a significant data centre expansion.
Fuelled by the rise of cloud computing, Big Data and IoT, the demand for data centres is at an all-time high and will only keep growing stronger. This is particularly true for the Asia-Pacific region, where technology adoption is speeding up thanks to demographic trends and rising wealth. Smart cities are also driving the sector since they require the backbone of a highly functional and heavily invested data centre platform to succeed.
In the broadest sense, data centres represent an annuity-style investment opportunity. There are multiple ways to suit differing budgets to be a part of this global opportunity with MyCloudParticle (MCP).
- Buy an existing or create a new Data Centre and hire MCP to operate the Data Centre
- Offer own commercial property on long term lease to MCP for up to 30 years
- Offer own suitably located land on long lease to MCP for a built to suit data centre facility
- Buy suitable Data Centre Assets and lease them to MCP or associates
- Buy partial Data Centre Assets and lease them to MCP or associates
By leasing your built-up property or land to MCP for creating data centre infrastructure, you may be able to gain a better return on your immovable assets. For more information about long term leasing of your property, please contact us at any of our offices.
By investing in Data Centre Assets, either as a complete unit or parts thereof, your risk exposure to the industry sector is minimised, yet you can benefit from the potential upside. MyCloudParticle thus offers a unique option for those investors who want to test the investment class before committing larger investments.
