Finding low-risk places to invest is not easy in these turbulent times. But if you look for companies that have demographics in their favour and offer a reasonable yield, you may find some opportunities.

One area worth considering is businesses that specialize in residences for the growing seniors population. I suggest a good choice is Chartwell Retirement Residences REIT (TSX: CSH.UN) and here is what you need to know about it.

 The business:

Chartwell is the largest owner and operator of seniors’ residences in Canada. The REIT indirectly owns and operates 175 residences across four provinces providing a complete range of seniors housing communities from independent supported living through assisted living to long-term care.

The security:

Chartwell units trade mainly on the Toronto Stock Exchange, under the symbol CSH.UN. The units trade quite actively with daily volume often in excess of 300,000. American residents can buy shares on the over-the-counter Grey Market under the symbol CWSRF, however volume is extremely thin (average of less than 100 units a day).
