Investing in EM Healthcare: "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"

Earlier this month we attended the Healthcare Business International (HBI2017) conference in London which focuses on the private healthcare services sector globally. Attendees include senior executives of healthcare services companies, medical equipment manufacturers, various service providers, bankers, and investors (primarily private equity). The agenda included panel discussions, presentations, and numerous networking breaks.

In addition, the agenda included brief roundtable discussions for small groups on topics chosen by the roundtables’ hosts. We hosted one of the roundtables on the above-listed subject.  Yes, the attendance was good and the discussions were informative.

We shared a handout to stimulate the conversation (image below). The point of the exercise is to summarize the investment opportunity in healthcare in these countries and the associated risks. We think that rewards outweigh the potential risks, particularly by identifying, acknowledging, and avoiding or mitigating the latter as much as possible. 




Please reply to this email if you would like a PDF of the handout or have questions.
