Presenting the report will be Elaine Worzala, (top left photo) Professor and Director of the Center for Real Estate Development at Clemson University in Clemson, SC; Cambridge Chairman Jeffrey A. Davis (top right photo); and Judith F. Karofsky, President of Real Estate Insites, LLC of Madison, WI. The risk premiums established by the research team are based on the financial and regulatory characteristics of the alternative investments, Mr. Davis said.
He said the research examines the rapid development over the last 15 years of the senior housing market as a hybrid real estate investment incorporating the characteristics of multifamily, hotel and medical office property investments. Risk premiums for independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing homes and continuing care retirement communities are established in the report.
Mr. Davis said the specific findings of the research will include clear definitions of the alternative sub-sectors within the senior housing marketplace. The report will include an analysis of the various risks associated with investing in alternative senior housing investments, and will provide a snapshot view of current performance data on the various investment opportunities. Also included will be results of a survey of plan sponsors conducted by the Pension Real Estate Association.
