There is real momentum behind the senior living and healthcare sectors, as ageing demographics is leading to growing demand and supply is limited. What used to be an alternative asset class has become mainstream and the opportunities in Europe are driving domestic and foreign investors’ interest.
The Senior Housing and Healthcare Association’ is a new initiative that is driving forward the sector.
HEVO, Real Asset Media and Amsterdam School of Real Estate have joined forces to create a European association that has the objective to bring together leaders within the industry (from both the operator and investor side), share insights with the wider market, help create research and data, benchmark and encourage best practice, create greater investment coverage and boost investor confidence and engagement in the sector.
We have connected some industry leaders as founding members to raise ‘The Senior Housing and Healthcare Association’. The new association will hold an annual conference, will promote and publish specialised in-depth research as well a special publication dedicated to updates and developments in the sector.
From an economic, environmental, social and governance perspective investments in the sector qualify as impact investing, as they have a unique set of characteristics: their shared purpose is to have a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable people and on society (in terms of costs as a percentage of GDP).
