Background of Investment in Healthcare Facilities
Healthcare facilities which must be upgraded
and expanded in order to address the aging of society.
Currently, there is a need to promote the supply of healthcare facilities in order to address the increasing demand for nursing care services and medical services in Japan’s aging society. In addition, an environment is being created to promote the origination of healthcare REITs in order to respond to the increase in financing needs for the construction and operation of healthcare facilities.
The role of the pipeline connecting the nursing care and medical service industries with the capital markets
By stably investing in and owning healthcare facilities, the investment corporation aims to fulfill the role as a pipeline connecting the capital markets and the nursing care and medical service industries, areas in which societal needs are expected to increase and where growth is anticipated.
