The Healthcare property market
In 2050 the world has more than two billion people with an age of over 65 years. That is more than 20% of the population, while that percentage was only 10% in the 1990s. The cause lies in declining birth rates and the fact that life expectancy increases. The consequences are currently visible in the Western world due to retirement of the baby boom generation. The effects of aging of the population is an important demographic development, which influences the investment policy of many institutional investors.
The major trends in the Dutch Healthcare Market are:
People want to live longer at home. This development has been going on for some time and stems from the desire and the present-day possibilities to be able to continue to live at home.
Preference for small-scale care complexes in the vicinity of the former living environment, when living at home is no longer possible.
Specialization in healing and treatment. The central role of diagnosis and treatment in health centers plays a major role in this.
In The Netherlands the figures are impressive. The number of people over 65 years and 90 years will increase by respectively 55% and 191% in 2040. The number of people with a form of dementia will increase in 2040 from 250.000 to 400.000. An increasing number of people will need a form of care, care housing and care facilities. Next to increasing demand there is also a change in demand as a result of individualization in society. In order to be able to provide for the increasing and changing demand for care, new properties will have to be realized and the existing real estate will have to be replaced.
The Economic Institute for Construction (EIB) has translated these trends into an estimate for the required construction to provide the Netherlands with sufficient healthcare real estate. According to the EIB, there is an annual need to expand healthcare real estate from 800,000 m² to 2030. This implies an investment and financing demand per year of € 1.5 billion in 2016, rising to an annual requirement of € 3.3 billion in 2030
The Fund identifies, develops and manages investments in healthcare real estate objects that meet its financial and social objectives.
The Fund focuses on three segments of the Dutch healthcare real estate market: Assisted living, Nursing homes and Care and treatment centers. Assisted living offers housing to people, with a need for care, who want to live independently. In the property a combination of care, services and well-being is provided. Nursing homes focus on people with intensive care needs. This includes people with a severe psychogeriatric (including Alzheimer) and / or somatic condition. Care centers offer space to a range of healthcare providers in primary care, including general practitioners, physiotherapy and a pharmacy.
The Fund invests in solely in The Netherlands in municipalities with an increasing demand for senior housing and facilities.
Hartelt is member of GRESB, the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark. The GRESB Real Estate Assessment measures the sustainability performance of real estate funds and portfolios. Apollo was awarded three stars for its ESG performance.
Additionally the fund requires all its real estate object to be GPR certified and to receive a minimum score of 7/10. The GPR score assesses sustainability performance in five themes: Energy, Environment, Health, Quality of Use and Future Value.
The intended size of the fund is 200 million euros. Stichting Pensioenfonds voor Huisartsen (SPH) is the first investor in the Fund with 80 million euros. The Apollo Zorgvastgoedfonds has been developed in collaboration with the Dutch Investment Institution N.V. (NLII). At the time NLII was established to enable institutional investors such as pension funds and insurers to invest directly in the Dutch economy.
The Fund started in 2017. Currently the Fund has nine properties in its portfolio with a total value of € 58 million. The portfolio offers a combination of new developments and standing investment. The current pipeline of the Fund is € 170 million.
Below a property for each investment segment of the Fund is shown.
