Care Home Investment
Care homes that are fit for the future.
Why invest in care homes?
There is an undersupply of quality care homes in the UK. At the same time, an ageing population is placing greater demands on the UK’s increasingly outdated care home stock.
Institutional capital is helping to build the infrastructure needed to support the elderly today, and in the decades to come.
Our sector expertise and relentless focus on quality is allowing us to create care homes fit for the future and target a resilient income profile for investors.
How we’re building care homes that are fit for the future
Michael Toft, Senior Fund Manager, discusses the UK’s ageing population and care system, and the role of investors in shaping the future.
“Fundamentally, what we’re doing is investing in care homes that we would be happy for our own loved ones to live in. Having homes that are fit for the future will ensure the right quality of care is provided.”
Michael Toft, Care Home Senior Fund Manager
