"Over the past two decades of personal involvement in the industry, the most satisfying aspect has been the ability to meet the expectations of our investors".

John Jackson, Executive Director

Our strategy is simple

We lend to carefully selected, well-located and soundly run retirement villages and aged care facilities. The Senior Trust policy limits lending to any one retirement village to a maximum of 75% of the valuation of the village, as determined by an independent registered valuation.

This conservative, measured approach to lending and sole focus as a specialist investor has delivered consistent income returns to our investors. We’re committed to providing you, as an investor in our fund, with regular PIE taxed quarterly distributions. And the sense of satisfaction that comes from enabling more quality housing for senior New Zealanders, that may also mean not having to move away from family to get the care they require.

Meet the team

Our agile team of sector and financial experts is proud to be working for our investors.

"I’m in my 70’s and interested in retirement accommodation. When I sold my house I spread my money across the investment spectrum. I’ve stayed with Senior Trust - Vision Senior Living, since I first invested nearly 20 years ago. I’ve never been short-changed. I trust the management. Senior Trust reliably delivers! I like the idea of financing what might be my future home."
