This Bournemouth firm says it sells two-thirds of Britain’s owner-occupied retirement housing. It hopes to capitalise on a predicted 50% increase in over-65s by 2030 and is investing £2bn over the next four years to build 12,000 new homes. To support this growth, it is opening four new regional offices that are expected to double its output to more than 3,000 units per year in the medium term. Clive Fenton, 57, is chief executive.
