Sovereign Funds Go Surgical on Healthcare Investing

According to data from SWFI’s Sovereign Wealth Fund Transaction Database, sovereign investors directly invested US$ 6.61 billion into the healthcare sector in 2015 – a staggering amount compared to previous years. However, 2016 has been off to a tepid start. Preliminary data from the first two quarters of 2016 (data is still being tabulated until the end of June 2016), wealth funds, so far have directly invested US$ 285 million into the healthcare sector, compared to US$ 3.75 billion in the first two quarters of 2015. Again, to be accurate, not all the transaction data has been tabulated for the first half of 2016. The preliminary transaction data for 2016 does encapsulate the feeling that wealth funds are more cautious on healthcare companies and could be more selective for the remainder for 2016.
