Seveneast Healthcare is a company specialised in healthcare investments
The team utilizes its unique skill set, know how and industry connections, primarily for its own account. Very few teams have the sufficient comprehension to understand the scientific, medical, financial and industrials implications in the healthcare sector.
Seveneast has made its mark over the last decade in unearthing investment opportunities and selecting outstanding mangers in the healthcare sector. It’s expertise focuses on hedge fund selection and private investment opportunities in healthcare. Through its scientific and industrial Advisory Board and extensive network in healthcare, Seveneast covers all the key necessary know how to navigate the healthcare sector.
Optimising risk to reward in healthcare investing
We are currently living in an era of strong scientific and medical advancement, only 15 years ago the first human genome was sequenced, the blueprint of life. Scientific advancement and the techniques developed to understand science are expanding at an exponential rate. The use of computers and creation of bridges between different disciplines are opening new frontiers in healthcare, whether in life sciences or healthcare services, and are offering great investment opportunities.
Never the less, investing in healthcare is as much understanding the opportunity set as it is understanding the risks associated to it. The healthcare sector, and particularly life sciences (therapeutic drug development), comprises of risks that are inherent to the sector and that are found nowhere else in business. The very nature of drug development is to navigate in a system that is not yet fully understood (i.e. the human body) creating an additional level of risk that by it’s nature creates binary investment risk. Either the drug works with tolerable side effects to the human body or it fails to do so.
Yet, a new therapeutic approach that works or a more efficient way of identifying disease can revolutionise the healthcare system and bring tremendous value and close the gap of high unmet needs, benefiting patients and the healthcare system as whole. On the other hand failure to capture these advantages destroys value.
Seveneast aims to optimise risk to reward in healthcare investing, through its thorough understanding of the healthcare sector, its opportunities and risks.
