To Colisee

Market Trends and Drivers

Colisee’s activities are centred around delivering essential services for elderly people in need of care. The underlying long-term development is supported by strong secular trends, such as an aging population, increasing prevalence rates, structural sociodemographic trends, and an increased shift to privately managed elderly care. Colisee operates under stable and predictable regulatory systems that result in high visibility of cash flows and entry barriers for new entrants. Colisee management has built a leading platform in fragmented markets, with significant growth potential through buy-and-build.

Colisee constitutes a truly thematic investment in social infrastructure, a sector where EQT has a proven track record of owning and developing strong companies. EQT Infrastructure will support management in their pursuit of new growth opportunities in current and new markets, drawing on EQT’s global footprint and extensive network of advisors.
