The present study performed a bibliometric analysis using 119 articles in the field of reverse mortgages from the Web of Sciences (WoS) database from 1978 to May 2022. To provide a comprehensive result, this study employs VOS Viewer software to construct the networks of co-citations of authors and sources of articles. The results show that the growth trend was recognized from the beginning year 2011 and it gained significant attention from researchers before and during the predicament period of the Global financial crisis 2007-8. It can be seen that the positive trend of interest in this field of study remained in the following years, particularly in the years 2020 and 2021. Using the co-citation analysis, the authors focus on fundamental issues in reverse mortgages such as knowledge (literacy) and demands of reverse mortgage products for elderly homeowners, risks associated with reverse mortgages such as default on their property taxes and insurance, potential growth of reverse mortgages as a financial tool, and fair valuations of reverse mortgages. The Journal of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association and Insurance Mathematics and Economics are found to be the most-cited journals in the field of study of reverse mortgages.
