Germany and Sweden see significant increases in care-home investment
Investment into Swedish and German care homes between January and September 2020 has increased by 80 percent and 21 percent year-on-year, respectively, according to Savills’ latest research.
These two countries also accounted for 42 percent (Germany) and 23 percent (Sweden) of the total investment volume of €3.6 billion ($4.3 billion) in the European care-homes sector during the first three quarters of the year. Belgium, Finland and the Netherlands are also strategic care-home markets targeted by investors, according to the international real estate adviser.
Savills notes that public, specialized REITs, which have been pioneers in the market, are still the most dynamic players, notably Aedifica and Confinimmo. Nevertheless, a growing range of investors is now involved in the sector, including investment managers (such as Priminial, Patrizia, Threestones Capital and Syntrus) and listed property companies (for example, SBB I Norden).
