As much as the lifestyle and tourism sectors have been hit by COVID-19, Ingenia (ASX:INA) has been one exception.

Ingenia operates retirement living and holiday parks across Australia and it has benefited from the domestic tourism boom as well as the trend of city slickers moving to regional areas post COVID-19.

It made revenue of $295.6 million and a profit of $72.8 million in FY21 enabling it to pay a healthy dividend. Director John McLaren instead of taking the cash opted to participate in the dividend reinvestment program.

He ended up with over $1.7 million more in shares.
