U.S. Healthcare REITs Dividend and Growth
The world is undoubtedly experiencing higher rates of population growth than ever before. Similarly, at the same time, the baby boomer cohort is transitioning into the retirement phase of their life. Going into the next decade, the world will see the issue of a growing senior population and thus an increasing demand for senior-related services such as medicine and healthcare services. For those who are more risk averse and emphasize a more consistent return on capital (via Dividends), investing in the senior care REITs can be an excellent avenue for future growth.
From the age distribution of the U.S. population, we notice a peak in the 45-55 years of age. Given the next 10 years when a large population of people begin to enter the retirement age, there will be an undeniably high demand in the need for healthcare operations to service this increasing demand.
