Target Healthcare REIT (THRL)

Business description

Target Healthcare REIT invests in modern, purpose-built residential care homes in the UK let on long leases to high-quality care providers. It selects assets according to local demographics and intends to pay increasing dividends underpinned by structural growth in demand for care.

Investment summary

Target has provided a NAV and portfolio update as at 30 June. The previously announced acquisition of a newly-built home in Leicestershire and the forward funding of one in Merseyside bring the portfolio to a total of 47 properties and closer to management’s target of a 20% loan-to-value (LTV) ratio (14.2% at 30 June). We have adjusted our estimates for the NAV update and to account for the timing of the new investments. Target has the longest lease portfolio of any UK REIT, producing stable income streams from high-quality and purpose-built modern care homes. These support a prospective dividend yield of 5.2%.

Industry outlook

The UK population over the age of 85 is expected to increase by 140% from 2014 to 2039. There is a lack of high-quality care homes of the sort Target invests in, providing ample opportunity to grow the portfolio.
