Thought Leaders: Healthcare is HOT for Foreign Investors

Healthcare Capital Markets Perspective

June 2017

  • U.S. seniors housing has been a magnet for global capital with $3.4 billion in investments in the last 10 years, most in the last five years. Canada leads the pack with 40% of the total investment activity, followed closely by Asia-Pacific at 35%.
  • Chinese capital alone accounted for $2.6 billion in 2016 in North American healthcare properties including the $930 million investment by Cindat and Union Life for a 75% stake in a portfolio of Brookdale seniors housing and Genesis Healthcare post-acute care facilities owned by Welltower.
  • Interest in U.S. medical office from global investors is on the rise as they seek diversification and yield plus a hedge against political and currency risk. It’s early innings, but it’s a hot topic with investors from Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and the Americas for this formerly “alternative” asset class.
  • JLL believes the time is ripe for a major medical office acquisition by a foreign investor given prior investment activity in large-scale U.S. seniors housing.
