Keyton harnesses global expertise of its co-owners and strategic partners to lead retirement living industry and drive sustainable long-term business growth

The ownership structure and leadership calibre of an organisation play a defining role in setting the organisational tone and strategic direction to unlock long-term sustainable growth, and inspire confidence and trust with employees, customers, and industry.

Strong partnerships

Backed by global superannuation and pension funds, Aware Super and APG Asset Management, with a vision for long-term investment and growth, as well as Lendlease, Keyton combines a long history in the market spanning nearly three decades, with a fresh, exciting new name and brand.

Keyton’s strategic partnership with these large, global investors, coupled with its deep local knowledge and intimate retirement living expertise, means the business is ideally positioned for growth.

Diversification for continuous growth

Keyton’s strategic partners enable the diversification of Keyton’s investor base to allow it to fund growth, expand its operations, invest in research and development, and achieve its growth targets more quickly and efficiently over time. Taking a long-term position on the delivery of sustainable, profitable growth, Keyton’s partners are steadfastly focused on the long-term success of Keyton’s retirement living business.

The diversity of investors in Keyton’s business support it to navigate complex business challenges and make strategic decisions that support the long-term growth and success of the organisation. They are skilled at managing risk and adapting to change, ensuring the business remains agile and responsive to shifting market conditions.

As a result, Keyton is well-positioned for growth, as it continues to build on its place as the nation’s premier creator, owner, and operator of vibrant purpose-built communities for independent seniors focused on enjoying life, with more than 75 villages situated in some of the nation’s most sought-after locations.

Developing state-of-the-art retirement communities

On the development front, Keyton currently sits at around 13,500 retirement residences comprising a mix of both units and villas, with a view to grow its portfolio both organically via its development pipeline as well as through strategic, considered acquisition where the opportunity makes sense.

Keyton has a robust growth strategy, with a clear vision on where and how to grow. More importantly, its sustainable growth plans align with its core principles and strategy and are backed by the global depth and breadth of expertise brought by a diverse and experienced ownership base, allowing it to harness the global expertise of its co-owners and strategic partners to lead retirement living industry and drive its sustainable, long-term business growth.
