Why invest in Healthcare

We believe Healthcare is a long-term, secular growth sector as ageing populations in developed and emerging countries worldwide drive the demand and the need for increased healthcare provision.

The political conundrum is how to develop and deliver better healthcare to more people for less money. Healthcare companies with products or services that deliver demonstrable value and drive efficiency are well-placed for future growth with five key drivers propelling the sector.

The investment team that manages the Polar Capital Global Healthcare Trust was set up in 2007 and includes fund managers who all held senior roles in the pharma and biotech industry – in equity sales, as a clinical specialist and a research scientist as well as time working in academic laboratories and institutes – before managing money in the sector.

We anticipate demand for healthcare products and services to continue, and in some cases accelerate. At the same time, valuations look attractive, momentum is building and we have also only just begun to see a change in sector leadership.
