GFH makes another investment in US healthcare market

Bahrain-based Islamic investment firm GFH Financial Group has acquired a second portfolio of US medical clinics.

The transaction is valued at around US$400 million and is the firm’s second investment in US healthcare facilities.

The portfolio comprises 11 assets spread across four states – California, Texas, Maryland and Louisiana.

One of the main reasons for the investment is the sector’s resilience in the face of economic downturns, highlighted by the fact that there was 99% rent collection during the pandemic.

“We believe strongly in the long-term fundamentals in the healthcare sector and the dynamics that are supporting an increase in demand for high-quality medical office space,” said GFH co-chief investment officer, real estate, Nael Mustafa.

“This includes aging populations and growth in out-patient care which continues to make the sector highly recession-resilient and unimpacted by economic cycles.”
