Media Spotlight: Unlocking the Silver Economy



In a recently published article by DealStreetAsia our Chief Investment Officer Adelene Low shared her views and spotlighted Bintang Capital Partners’ investment in Malaysia’s leading elderly care service provider, Care Concierge


As the region undergoes a seismic demographic shift, the aged care sector presents both challenges and opportunities for impact investors like us.


Some of the emerging trends highlighted in the article include:

  • Real Estate in Aged Care: Investment in retirement villages, nursing homes, and wellness-focused living solutions is on the rise. Southeast Asian funds are being directed towards hospital facilities and lifestyle-oriented living solutions, emphasizing the need for comprehensive care environments.

  • Age Tech: Innovations in eldercare are rapidly emerging, such as robotic fitness instructors, VR technology for wellness, and advanced medical mobility services. These technologies aim to support the elderly in maintaining independence and cognitive health.

  • Cutting-edge products and services: The integration of technology into eldercare is creating new business opportunities. Innovations include wearable devices for health monitoring, data-enabled therapeutic robots, and gamified apps to boost brain function and activity among seniors.

  • Financial support: Financial products such as retirement savings schemes and insurance plans will ensure seniors have access to quality care without placing excessive additional strain on the public healthcare system.

  • Intergenerational Care: Models that integrate childcare services into nursing facilities are gaining traction. This approach helps alleviate loneliness and social isolation among seniors while providing children with greater security and a sense of community. It also promotes active lifestyles for seniors, reducing the risk of age-related diseases.

Bintang’s investment in Care Concierge has been a pivotal part of our journey and provided invaluable insights into the silver economy.

However, the high cost of aged care remains a significant barrier for the wider population.

This underscores the need for collaboration between the private and public healthcare players to ensure accessible and affordable care for our expanding senior population.

Bintang is committed to supporting companies like Care Concierge that can make a huge positive impact on the lives of Malaysian senior citizens.


The silver economy is not just an investment opportunity.


By addressing these challenges and embracing innovation, we can unlock the immense potential of the silver economy and ensure a dignified and fulfilling life for our region's growing senior population.

After all, we should all remember that one day we too will be part of the silver economy – the question we should ask ourselves is what sort of future we’d want when that day finally arrives?
