- The Senior Trust Retirement Village Income Generator (“Income Generator”) operates exclusively within the retirement village and aged care sector, in order to capitalise on the continued expanding demand for quality senior housing in New Zealand.
- Income Generator’s objective is to provide investors a stable, consistent, and attractive returns by taking advantage of the growth in the NZ retirement village and aged care industry.
- Quail Ridge, The Grove, The Glen, Ranfurly Residential Care, Clyde and Roys Bay are just some of the retirement villages that the Income Generator lends to.
Housing plays a significant role for older Kiwis as many elder people are living either alone or with their respective spouses amid a rising trend of parents living away from their children.
New Zealand has a globally acclaimed retirement village model. Aging population and shifting preferences in retirement living has led to an increased acceptance of retirement villages. Living in RVs also comes with benefits of security, socialisation, and health-related support services, which makes retirement villages more attractive to the senior Kiwis.
The Company considers that the demographic trend of ‘baby boomers’ looking for living in Retirement Villages has generated a strong demand for loan funds.
The demand for Retirement villages rose even more during and after the COVID-19-induced lockdowns as Kiwis took notice that village residents were being taken care of.
