Getting to know the team behind Senior Trust


  • The retirement village sector has been growing amid increasing demand from the baby-boomer population.
  • Senior Trust Retirement Village Income Generator was launched as an investment offer by Senior Trust Management Limited, to cater for the burgeoning demand of retirement villages for development funds.
  • Senior Trust was created to lend money in the form of loans to retirement and aged care operators.
  • Senior Trust’s management team objective is to protect investor capital and deliver a consistent, reliable, and attractive return to shareholders through its specialist industry knowledge and expertise.

The retirement village sector has performed strongly and stayed relatively resilient from COVID-19 in 2020. The sector has been surging, driven by retiring baby-boomer population, increasing demand, and soaring house prices.

As the retirement sector gathers momentum to keep up with the burgeoning demand, Senior Trust considers itself well-positioned, ready to benefit from the loans given to carefully-selected Retirement Villages and Aged Care services.

Senior Trust’s management team has been a specialist lender to the Retirement Village sector for more than 10 years. The team has a consistent track record of success in delivering attractive returns and preserving capital by lending to well-located and soundly run retirement village and aged care entities.

The Senior Trust Retirement Village Income Generator Limited (“Income Generator”) was launched by Senior Trust Management Limited as an investment offer to meet the rising demand from the depositors, who want fair returns. The launch came amid a low-yield interest environment and a surging retirement village sector.

The Income Generator was created to generate attractive returns from  loans to entities that own and operate Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities.

Senior Trust carefully chooses the Retirement Villages and Aged Care facilities that the Fund invests in, by using its specialist expertise, considerable industry experience and high levels of corporate governance.

Let us get acquainted with the experienced management team of Senior Trust.
