The Bouwinvest Healthcare Fund has acquired a private residential care facility in Breda from AIG Care & Living B.V. With a total of 32 care units, this facility will offer an attractive and comfortable living environment for future residents. The new-build project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2025.
Real Value for Life
The Bouwinvest Healthcare Fund invests exclusively for the pension fund for the construction industry, bpfBOUW, which aims to achieve a positive social return and stable financial returns in order to pay out pensions. This is how Bouwinvest creates Real Value for Life. Acting on behalf of bpfBOUW, the Bouwinvest Healthcare Fund’s target is to grow to over € 800 million in invested capital in 2025.
Helma Spuls, Director Dutch Healthcare Investments: “This acquisition is a seamless fit with the Healthcare Fund’s strategy, which, in addition to assisted living and intramural care facilities, focuses on the private medical care segment. We are seeing increasing demand for homes in this segment, driven by the ‘extramuralisation’ of elderly care, while new-build projects like this enable us to optimise sustainability. The Healthcare Fund has identified the municipality of Breda as a core region for private medical care facilities due to the growing number of senior citizens and a favourable investment market. Currently, there is relatively little supply in the private residential care segment in the region. We are responding to this.”
AIG Care & Living acquired this attractive location via a tender. “Soon after we’d analysed and discussed the site with healthcare operator Stepping Stones, it became clear that it was perfect for redevelopment into residential care for the elderly: it offers peace and quiet and space, while still being close to metropolitan facilities, combined with a high demand for small-scale living with high-quality care”, says AIG’s Bart van Venrooij.
