Globally, there is an ageing population. In the UK, there are now more people over 65 than under 16. By 2020, nearly a quarter of the population will be of retirement age. Governments are unable to meet the growing demand for care homes and retirement villages. Over the next 25 years one in 12 people will be aged 80 or above. This is due to the “baby boomer” generation reaching old age and improvements in medical care.
Baby-boomers (the generation born between 1946 and 1964) have reaped the benefits of the post war economic boom and are the wealthiest age group ever to have retired. Those who are attracted to retirement living are usually self-paying, and means that these types of investments have strong fundamentals.
There is an opportunity to acquire UK properties within a retirement village and have the property leased back from the operator for 10 years at 10% net income. This could be an ideal rand hedge.
