Healthcare M&A Requires More Sophistication From Private Equity

       
Building a Successful Health Care Portfolio

Health care investments require specialized treatment



The booming health care market offers lucrative investment opportunities. In 2017, private equity investment in the U.S. health care market totaled $83 billion, up from $72 billion in 2016, according to the American Investment Council. And the surge is continuing. The first few months of 2018 saw the busiest start to a year in health care mergers and acquisitions in more than a decade, with approximately $156 billion worth of M&A deals (of all types, not just private equity) already agreed upon, the strongest start in over a decade, according to Bloomberg Markets.
