Over the past decade the investment performance of the Australian residential aged care and retirement living sectors has been varied. In this process new business models have been trialled with successes and failures. Industry commentators and operators have put forward the reasons behind this varied investment performance. This research comprises a retrospective desktop study of the reported and analysed investment experience; data sources include company filings, industry commentary and analyst reports. From this data qualitative content analysis has been undertaken in which initial coding categories are inductively derived. This study has identified the following issues: the structure of the investment vehicle; whether the investment was sector specific or diversified; demographic factors including the timing of investment and socio-economic issues and whether there are any benefits in consolidation.
