Trend Report: Direct Healthcare Investments by SWFs and Public Funds, 2017-2018

Published

on

SEATTLE, WA. – 8 October 2018 – The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) has just released its 2017 report on direct investments by sovereign wealth and public pension funds in the world’s healthcare markets. The global healthcare industry’s resiliency and growth – fueled by an aging global population, a rising incidence of chronic health conditions, and growing demand for more efficient service delivery – has made it an increasingly popular destination for public asset owners seeking resiliency amidst economic turbulence and uncertainty.

“Sovereign funds are keen on providing calculated long-term capital to both stable and frontier healthcare technologies and therapies,” said Michael Maduell, President of the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute.

He adds, “Whether it comes to prescription digital therapeutics, treating neurodegenerative diseases or investing in new ways to deliver cost-effective healthcare, asset owners clearly recognize the growing capital flows into this sector. There are abundant opportunities for strategic development sovereign wealth funds to partner with innovative healthcare companies to expand offerings in home markets. At the same time, cash-rich wealth funds and strong-benched pensions can offer more patient financial firepower compared to traditional venture funds.”

The report reveals regional and sector-specific investment trends, and sheds light on the different factors driving public asset owner engagement in this increasingly vital sector of the global economy. Some featured institutional investors and companies in this brief study include Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), GlaxoSmithKline plc, Pharmaceutical Product Development LLC, and Verily Life Sciences LLC.
