Editor's Letter 6 Seniors Housing Business n April 2018 Recognizing that seniors hous- ing is a capital-intensive industry, this special edition of our magazine focuses almost exclusively on debt and equity financing trends shaping the property sector, one that is full of opportunity but also fraught with potential pitfalls. We kick off our coverage with an in-depth look at several factors affecting the flow of foreign capital into the U.S. seniors housing indus- try, including the EB-5 visa pro- gram, government regulations and investors' time horizons. In addition to seeking healthy returns, Chinese investors have an added incentive to learn as much as they can about seniors hous- ing abroad. With some 220 million people in China over the age of 60, investors are looking for successful seniors housing business models that they can emulate back home. The lack of affordable housing is a growing crisis in America. Nearly all of the new affordable housing built in this country is financed with money raised through the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. The passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has given the economy a short- term boost. The mea- sure, which cuts the top corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 per- cent, encourages busi- ness investment and job creation. But as a result of the lower cor- porate tax burden, investors such as banks clearly have less incentive to buy housing credits and claim tax- liability benefits. Our story looks at how developers are adjusting to this new reality. And no assessment of the capital markets would be complete without an update on Fannie Mae and Fred- die Mac, whose annual production volume of $5.5 billion and $3.6 bil- lion respectively in 2017 reached a record high. Lastly, our lender roundtable focuses on trends in underwriting and addresses the hot-button issue of overbuilding. There is no short- age of opinion.
