Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce that the 2012 LeadingAge Ziegler 100 (LZ 100) is now available. This report, the ninth edition of the LZ100, is a snapshot of the long-standing story of LeadingAge members. The LZ 100 lists the largest not-for-proﬁt systems providing aging services through senior living in the United States, by order of their total owned market-rate units.
The LeadingAge Ziegler 100 began through the desire of LeadingAge and Ziegler to examine and understand the not-for-proﬁt senior-living field. The 100 largest systems represent more than 201,000 market-rate senior-living units. The systems range in size from 18,934 units to 782 units, and they own 973 total communities.
Dan Hermann, Senior Managing Director and Head of Investment Banking at Ziegler, commented, “2011 did not fall short in providing challenges to providers. The nation faces healthcare reform, a housing market that is emerging from crisis and a sluggish economy. As a result of these challenges, providers are looking to new and innovative ways to attract residents.” As one of the nation’s leading underwriters of financing for not-for-profit senior living providers, Ziegler offers investment banking, financial risk management, merger and acquisition services, investment management, seed capital, FHA/HUD, capital and strategic planning as well as senior living research, education, and communication.
