There are currently over 260,000 full time students in the capital, yet purpose-built accommodation can only cater for around 16 per cent of them.The excess demand has led to long-term average rental growth of around seven per cent – a figure which grew to 10 per cent in 2009, Carlyle said.The firm expects the number of post-graduate and overseas students – a group which tends to favour secure purpose-built accommodation – to grow by around 15 per cent over the next couple of years. But it said current supply will struggle to keep up, with only 4,000 new beds due for delivery between 2010 and 2012.

A reading above 50 indicates growth in activity.The survey said growth in the industry was led by the commercial sector and civil engineering, which reported its strongest activity since February 2008. Activity in the house-building sector fell, ending a 12-month period of growth.New orders remained in positive territory in September, but the rate of growth eased for a fourth successive month and firms cut jobs at their fastest pace in six months.The mixed construction data comes after a similar survey of factory purchasing managers last week showed the sector grew at its slowest pace in 10 months, indicating overall economic growth is likely to slow sharply from a 1.2 per cent expansion in the second quarter.“While the construction sector only accounts for 6.3 per cent of national output, the apparent substantial slowdown in activity over July to September adds to the evidence that growth slowed markedly in the third quarter,” said Howard Archer, economist at IHS Global Insight.Deep upcoming government spending cuts will hit the construction sector particularly hard, with many public building and infrastructure projects likely to be shelved as the government seeks to eliminate its massive budget deficit over five years.

Bear, elected by the City’s livery companies, is appropriately steeped in City professions: he is currently MD of Balfour Beatty Property and a non-executive director of Arup. As if you needed another reason to loaf around the City on weekends after One New Change.IMAGE DOCTORINGThe undertakers of corporate Britain attempted a little re-branding exercise last week as the UK Turnaround Management industry gathered for its annual conference at the Royal College of Physicians. In an effort to convince the assembled insurers, lawyers and bankers that the industry is more healer than undertaker, the conference recruited speakers including Barclays’ Graham Rusling and KPMG’s head of restructuring Richard Fleming.And flying the flag up front for the resuscitation of the industry’s image was Risk Capital Partners’ Luke Johnson.

They were trading at 590.5p at 1821 GMT, down from a high of 600p.The Trent XWB is the only engine that can power the Airbus A350 XWB planes, making the order an inevitable follow-on from the purchase of such an aircraft.Still, the company will hope today’s order will ease some of the negative publicity surrounding it following criticism by Qantas and others over its handling of the QF32 flight. It is under pressure to clarify how many Airbus A380 planes must have their engines replaced and how long that will take.“Bearing in mind confidence is at a low then any good news has to be positive for the price. “We should welcome it for what it is, a very large order for a well-proven set of engines,” said BGC analyst Howard Wheeldon. “In troubled times such as this, it’s super news and it’s great news for the UK in terms of exports as well,” he added.Rolls-Royce is already well established in China, where it has a 56 per cent share of the market for large civil aero-engines.

Delighted analysts upgraded their price targets today, reassured about future robust performances from the company.“While the news of Steve Jobs’ medical leave may continue to add some headwinds to the share price momentum in the near term, we continue to believe improving underlying fundamentals and the strength of Apple’s overall management team will counter this uncertainty,” Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shoppe said.The results, against a backdrop of retail profit warnings as snow in the UK and US hit pre-Christmas trading, are better than analysts had expected and “We had a phenomenal holiday quarter with record Mac, iPhone and iPad sales,” said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs. “We are firing on all cylinders.”Apple sold 4.13 million Macs in the quarter, up 23 per cent unit from the previous year; 16.24 million iPhones, an 86 per cent unit growth from a year earlier; and 7.33 million iPads. It also sold 19.45 million iPods – but this registered a seven per cent unit decline from the same quarter the previous year. International sales accounted for 62 per cent of the quarter’s revenue, it said in a statement.The company statement did not mention Jobs’ medical leave from the firm, his second period of leave since he fought pancreatic cancer in 2008 and early 2009.Instead, it gave a bullish outlook scenario, forecasting $22bn revenues and $4.90 earnings per share. “We couldn’t be happier with the performance of our business, generating $9.8bn in cash flow from operations during the December quarter,” said CFO Peter Oppenheimer.
