One consequence of the recent health crisis is that investors have increasingly sought diversification into alternative asset classes such as senior living and healthcare.
This could have significant consequences for this sector, whose assets are in relatively short supply, particularly when investment volumes required are substantial.
“We’ve seen keener interest not only from the investors already in that space, but also from investors that we did not used to see because they were in office and retail core markets,” Mozaic Asset Management president Frédéric Dib said.
Demand is also emanating from beyond Europe, including China, the US and the Middle East, he explained to Real Asset Insight’s Richard Betts.
“US investors tend to come looking for mass,” he said. “What is going to be the impact of all that increased and additional interest in a sector where product is more scarce?” he asked.
