Grove International Partners

by Robert F. Higgins, Carin-Isabel Knoop and Suzanne Petrela

Abstract

Grove International Partners, one of the world's largest international real estate private equity funds, is actively seeking new investment opportunities in the seniors housing industry. The firm has identified two potential opportunities--one located in Japan and one in the United Kingdom--that would place it at the leading edge of one of the most lucrative and socially meaningful health care services markets in the world. Grove evaluates these two opportunities and decides which one, if either, to pursue.
