Hines and Sentio Investments have formed a new partnership, specializing in senior living and other healthcare real estate assets.
“We feel the macroeconomic and demographic trends provide a compelling opportunity to invest in healthcare assets,” says Sherri Schugart, CEO of the Core Fund, REIT and BDC Group of Hines.
The partnership will bring together the real estate and capital markets expertise of Hines and the healthcare real estate acquisition and asset management expertise of Sentio.
Hines and Sentio historically have invested alongside both institutional and individual investors to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns across all real estate asset classes, including Sentio’s most recent sale of its public nontraded REIT, Sentio Healthcare Properties in 2017.
Hines and Sentio believe the long-term fundamentals for healthcare real estate are very favorable. The U.S. Census Bureau expects the population growth of individuals aged 80 years old and older to accelerate in the near term, with significant growth through the year 2050. The demand, coupled with the aging of existing senior living inventory, presents an opportunity to invest in high-quality senior living and healthcare real estate. The Hines-Sentio partnership’s unique experience navigating operational and real estate complexities will allow investors to capitalize on this opportunity.
