With the population of the over 85’s expected to grow by 64% to 2.6 million by 2031*, the UK is facing a severe shortage of suitable housing for the elderly. There is demand for modern, high-quality care homes in the UK, yet supply is limited. There is a huge opportunity for institutional investors to invest in this growing market and provide the capital needed to create suitable accommodation for the ageing population while benefiting from the long term, inflation-linked income that the sector offers.
