The global healthcare industry sits at the intersection of several powerful long-term growth trends led by global demographics and the ineluctable advance of scientific innovation in treating disease.
These trends have caused a steady increase in the level of healthcare spending in the industrialized world, led by the U.S. which now spends over 17% of its GDP on healthcare. The healthcare industry's powerful growth profile coupled with its magnitude and complexity create myriad investment opportunities.
