The Healthcare Boom Goes Global

In what should come as no surprise to regular readers of the Ipreo Blog, the healthcare sector is booming – worldwide.

The latest issue of Ipreo’s Global Equity Assets Report, our publication that explores institutional investment activity around the world, drills down into the Healthcare Sector and puts some worldwide numbers around the growth explosion therein.

From the report: A total of $25.9B was added to the sector during Q2, following an impressive $50.5B raised in Q1, marking a notable increase from the $21.1 billion that was invested during Q2 2013. The United States was by far the largest buyer, with a net inflow of $20.6B, greater than the combined $9.7B from the next 9 largest purchasers including the U.K. and China.
