Strategic Trends in Private Equity and Venture Capital Funding for Healthcare

For PE firms and VC companies, capital commitments, also referred to as fundraising, are crucial to their business models; which require significant funds to be able to fund companies and provide mezzanine capital (a hybrid of debt and equity financing that is typically utilized to finance the expansion of operations of already established companies), and for PE firms to engage in buyouts. It is therefore important that these companies are able to raise adequate levels of capital from outside investors, to enable them to invest in emerging companies in various sectors of the economy.


The accumulating evidence of the decline in R&D productivity adds to the uncertainty associated with innovation in the healthcare industry, which in turn reduces the attractiveness of the field for investment. If investments from private equity and venture capital (VC) firms in the healthcare industry continue to decrease significantly, it could have serious and wide-ranging consequences not just in the healthcare sector, but in wider economies.

CBR Pharma Insight’s latest report Strategic Trends in Private Equity and Venture Capital Funding for Healthcare provides a comprehensive analysis on emerging investment trends within the healthcare industry. The report also includes forecasts for the outlook for PE and VC firms investing in the healthcare sector. VC investment in early-stage healthcare companies continues to decline, and has almost completely disappeared in certain countries.

Global Drug Delivery Technologies

Drug Delivery Technologies – An Overview

Drug delivery technologies are engineered technologies that deliver drugs to achieve a therapeutic effect. Advances in these technologies usually aim to increase the efficacy of the drug, improve drug absorption and decrease side effects. Drugs are administered via different routes, mechanisms, and carriers. The most common routes are oral and directly into the systemic circulation. Other non-invasive routes include topical and transmucosal delivery. Examples of transmucosal delivery include ocular, nasal, buccal, sublingual, vaginal and rectal delivery.

gbi sr.png

As shown in the above figure, some of the common carriers used for the delivery of a drug into the system are nucleic acid-based carriers, cell-based carriers, magnetic particles, nanoparticles-based carriers, polymer-based carriers and lipid-based carriers. Protein and peptide drugs are mostly delivered intravenously, as they are susceptible to degradation in the digestive tract.

CBR Pharma Insight’s latest report Global Drug Delivery Technologies – Innovation Driven by Rapidly Expanding Injectables Market and Increasing Usage of Complex Biologics during the Forecast Period discusses the drug delivery technologies and trends in the market and the evolving business strategies being adopted and leveraged by companies globally. The ultimate goal of drug delivery research is to develop formulations and devices that can be used in clinical applications to treat various diseases.

Discretionary Asset Management: HNW Demand and Drivers

Globally, 51.9% of HNW wealth is placed in discretionary mandates 

The majority of global HNW investors’ assets are booked in discretionary asset management services offered by wealth managers. Generally discretionary mandates appear to be more accessible to clients than advisory services, as many competitors (including UBS Wealth Management and JP Morgan Private Bank and their UK propositions) have set higher minimum investment thresholds for advised portfolios.


The greater interaction between advisors and clients under advisory mandates can make them more costly and labor-intensive for wealth managers. However, the tendency to give up control over investment decisions is influenced by a number of other factors, and regional differences in the uptake of discretionary mandates can also be observed.

Verdict Financial’s Discretionary Asset Management: HNW Demand and Drivers report draws on our 2016 Global Wealth Managers Survey to analyze HNW investors’ preferences and attitudes towards discretionary asset management services across the globe. It sizes the market for discretionary mandates and examines key drivers behind wealthy individuals choosing such services. The competitive landscape is also analyzed.

Global Cancer Vaccines Market to 2022

Global revenues for the cancer vaccines market are forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 16.93%, from $2.5 billion in 2015 to $7.5 billion in 2022. Cancer vaccines are being developed as a method of preventing certain types of cancer, and as therapeutic treatments to treat existing cancers across a range of indications in oncology.

The high mortality rate associated with cancer and its resistance to conventional treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy has led to the investigation of a variety of anti-cancer immunotherapies, which have a lower toxicity associated with their use than traditional chemotherapies, investigation of a variety of anti-cancer immunotherapies, which have a lower toxicity associated with their use than traditional chemotherapies.

Therapeutic vaccine administration will increase the overall survival of poor-performance-status patients, and enable more rounds of treatment to be given – factors that will contribute to growing global revenues for this class of therapy. However, cancer vaccines are not perceived as having strong commercial potential, as immune checkpoint inhibitors are expected to dominate the treatment landscape for leukemia and lymphoma during the forecast period.
