List of 3 important healthcare real estate investors in Europe
Care for the elderly and the sick will become increasingly important in the coming decades. In the EU alone, there are currently over 25 million people over the age of 80. This number is expected to increase by 130% between 2018 and 2050. Therefore, the interest in healthcare real estate is increasing and since governments have limited budgets, private investors and companies in the care sector have recently gained in importance. Here we present three companies active in the healthcare sector.
1. Aedifica SA (Brussels)
Brussels-based Aedifica SA is a listed company specializing in healthcare and nursing real estate in the European market. Aedifica’s portfolio is currently valued at 4.6 billion euros. The company operates in the European countries of Belgium, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands and owns over 570 healthcare properties. Aedifica leases the before-mentioned properties to over 110 different professional care providers.
Update 2023: Belgian company Aedifica is entering the Spanish market for senior real estate with a residence in Seville. The company, which specializes in the development of healthcare real estate, will invest thirteen million euros in the construction of a 160-place nursing home in the municipality of Tomares, to be operated by Neurocare and commissioned in early 2024.
2. Quandriga (Hamburg)
Quandriga GmbH is a Hamburg-based investment and asset management company. Quandriga is active in several asset classes and provides both direct and indirect investments and certain fund services. The company invests in office, retail, hotel and residential real estate.
3. Target Healthcare REIT (Stirling)

Focus on investors for senior living and care properties
The healthcare real estate asset class has grown strongly in recent years. The reason for this is the current demographic trend: by 2050, it is expected that there are more than 6 million people in need of care in Germany. Special nursing care properties are becoming particularly relevant in this context. These are often combined with “assisted living”, which promises seniors a mix of freedom and support. Healthcare properties are mostly operator properties. This means that a tenant takes over the business operations and pays rent for it. In our list we represent the largest and most important healthcare real estate investors in Europe. They buy a wide variety of properties in the “healthcare” segment.
