Aliso Viejo, California, January 14, 2020—“Student Housing Business” magazine has ranked NB Private Capital as No. 28 in its recent issue that recaps the top student housing owners for 2019.

Student Housing Business conducted the annual survey of the industry’s Top 25 Owners during the fall of 2019. More than 100 companies were invited to participate in the survey with 39 qualified companies responding. This year, NB Private Capital narrowly missed ranking among the Top 25, securing the No. 28 slot, advancing even closer than their 2018 list debut at No. 29.

Surveyed companies were ranked on 11 different categories, including the following:
