Fund managers deployed a record USD9.9b in the health care sector in 1H 2020

As COVID-19 continues to upend global markets, GPs have doubled down on investments in EM health care companies. Total capital invested in the sector rose 52% year over year to a record USD9.9b in 1H 2020. Notable deals include TPG and Hong Leong Group’s USD1.2b carve-out of Malaysia-based Columbia Asia Hospitals and Farallon Capital’s USD342m senior loan to India-based Piramal Enterprises, EMPEA’s largest recorded private credit transaction in the health care sector. While the bulk of EM activity across sectors, and in the health care space in particular, is concentrated in Emerging Asia, GPs are identifying opportunities amidst rising demand for health care services across many geographies, demonstrated by Value4Capital’s investment into Poland-based clinic chain Doktor24 and Zoscales Partners’ investment into Ethiopia-based medical imaging provider Pioneer Diagnostic Center.
