In 2018 alone, healthcare real estate investments in France have already exceeded 800 million euros. And we can say with certainty that the health crisis linked to Covid-19 will further consolidate our national and global health system.
Apart from that, there are also other reasons which lead us to believe that the needs for health infrastructures will multiply very soon. Curious to know more? Well, to find out everything about investing in health SCPI, we invite you to read the rest of this article.
The SCPI or Société Civile de Placement Immobilier is above all a savings investment. These are management companies, considered as “large real estate agencies”, which hold and manage professional property portfolios on behalf of several savers.
When you invest in a SCPI, you therefore indirectly and collectively become the owner of real estate for professional use.
It can be an office, a business, a warehouse, a hotel, etc. As an “indirect” co-owner, you do not have to take care of administrative questions or construction work. maintenance of the assets in which you have invested.
It is the management company which is responsible for managing the totality of the real estate park in return for a small commission of course.
The management company must also ensure that the investment of its savers is sustainable. To achieve this, for example, it will have to take into account the quality of the real estate it buys but also carefully select tenants.
It will then have to collect the rents to redistribute the income quarterly to all savers. It is important to specify that the value of the income distributed to each saver must be proportional to the amount invested.
In short, the more units you hold in SCPI, the greater the amount of income you will receive. Many people are still unaware of it but investments in SCPI are not necessarily limited to the borders of France. Indeed, most French management companies have already set out to conquer international players.
Why invest in a health SCPI?
Investing in the health sector will not only make your savings profitable but also help improve health services.
Here are just two important reasons for which you will have to invest your money in the health SCPI:
A profitable health crisis
If the 2020 health crisis has taught us anything, it is that health should always be at the center of all priorities.
Everyone quickly understood how poor the current health infrastructure was (lack of materials, staff, accommodation, etc.).
This is an observation that is shared by almost all the countries of the world. For health SCPI savers, this is an opportunity that opens up! Indeed, economic stimulus plans mainly focused on health are already being put in place all over the world.
The United States, for example, announced that 130 billion euros would be dedicated to the health sector to revive the American economy.. It is a movement that other countries, including European countries, will probably soon follow.
Needs that continue to increase
But at the same time, the health crisis of 2020 is not the only thing that should motivate you to invest in health SCPI.
In fact, the demands on the healthcare market have already increased for a few years now. And according to the estimates of many specialists, it will continue to increase in the years to come. What most people do not know is that the population, in France as elsewhere, is living longer and longer.
According to the latest polls, ¼ of the French would be over 60 years old and the figures could double within a few decades.
This demographic explosion will inevitably lead to an increase in health needs. In a few years, we will therefore need more clinics, more hospitals, more laboratories and more nursing homes.
This is why we recommend you invest in health infrastructure now for long-term returns.
