Hines And Sentio Partner Up For Senior Housing Investment Platform
Hines and Sentio Investments formed a partnership to invest in senior housing and other healthcare real estate assets.
Seeing an aging population and aging senior living inventory, the team is looking to assemble a healthcare property portfolio primarily via acquisitions, Hines Core Fund, REIT & BDC Group CEO Sherri Schugart said. The U.S. Census Bureau expects accelerated population growth of those over 80, with significant growth through 2050.
“We feel the macroeconomic and demographic trends provide a compelling opportunity to invest in health care assets,” Schugart said in a statement.
The team will begin raising capital and investing later this year and has not yet identified specific target markets or properties.
Robert A. Stanger & Co. assisted with the partnership formation.
Sentio sold its nontraded REIT, Sentio Healthcare Properties, to Kayne Anderson for $825M last fall.
