Investors are interested enough in value-added seniors housing properties to commit dollars to relatively new private equity funds. In January, ROC Seniors Hous- ing Fund Manager announced that it had raised an additional $137 million in equity, raising its total commitment to $450 million. The money is specifcally target- ing seniors housing and medical properties in the U.S. ROC is quickly putting this money to work. It acquired about $390 million in seniors housing properties in 2014 and early 2015, and has a strong pipeline of prop- erties to acquire. "Our objectives are to provide high current income and capital appreciation by acquiring and optimizing properties through capital investment and resident service," says Robert Morse, chairman of Bridge Investment Group Partners, ROC's parent company. Bridge has a long history in the apartment business, owning and managing a portfolio of about 32,000 apartments, including seniors housing units. New development beckons Private equity funds focused on seniors housing are also investing more of their capital in ground-up development than in the recent past. "The returns are pretty enticing," says Mace. PREI, for example, is able to allocate up to 20 percent of the capital in SHP V to new develop- ment. That's up from 10 percent in SHP IV. "Because of the competitive landscape, private equity funds are making much heavier allo- cations to development," says CBRE's Will. Other private equity funds that once invested 20 to 25 percent of their capital in new development now invest 30 to 40 percent. "They can't get their returns anywhere else," says Will. n NCREIF annualized total returns by select property types (periods ending 6/30/15) The seniors housing sector continues to outperform the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries' National Property Index (NPI), which tracks total returns among institutional-quality assets across the major property types.
