The Covid-19 sanitary crisis, a marker of the year 2020, has of course strongly questioned the modus operandi of nursing homes, which have been subjected to a painful current climate. After an initial period of questioning about the risk of obsolescence or even the inability to survive this crisis, nursing homes have demonstrated their resilience in a highly disrupted investment market; the volume of investment in Europe will reach €7.6 billion in 2020, up 24% from one year ago.
The relevance of the nursing homes' business model, which will ultimately have withstood the sanitary crisis very well, and the demographics (increase and aging of the population, need for accommodation adapted to the elderly) have reinforced the investors' strategy. The perspectives for 2021 are therefore good. Market operators' appetite for this asset category should continue to grow and support investment volumes, particularly in Germany (€3 billion invested in 2020), the Scandinavian countries and the United Kingdom. Investors are becoming more and more active in Southern Europe.
