Commenting on the new acquisitions, Andrew Hemming, Centuria Healthcare’s managing director, said:
Since we launched CHPF in late August 2020, investor appetite has been strong. The Fund is continuing to expand its portfolio, which is aligned with our strategy to secure modern, purpose-built assets that lend themselves to efficient and effective models of care.
These new transactions align to our strategy, enabling us to deliver monthly income returns to our investors. Our last capital raise before Christmas saw the fund substantially oversubscribed. Needless to say, our focus remains on meeting investment demand for high-quality healthcare assets.
With the new transactions, CHPF’s assets under management are now worth $219.9 million across 10 healthcare assets.
Centuria Healthcare’s total portfolio across Australia stands at $1.0 billion.
