Health & Wellbeing (C5KH) invests in some of the most impactful companies leading the charge to provide cutting-edge medical technologies, nutritional solutions and access to affordable housing.
Fund goal: Ensure the world's population has access to the basic goods and services required to live a healthful life.
Global health has improved drastically over the last century and an estimated $8.5 trillion
is spent every year on healthcare, accounting for an estimated 10% of the global GDP. But there are still huge gaps of unfilled demand. A large proportion of the global population still doesn’t have access to even basic healthcare services and ageing populations are putting increased pressure on the supply of health, care and housing. The demand for enhanced access to care and health services is undeniable, but investment is needed to provide them at scale. Alongside strong structural growth drivers for the health and wellbeing industries; health, as an essential service is typically more resilient in times of economic stress.
Health is a human right, yet many are still living without basic products and services that would enable them to lead a healthy life, such as access to a qualified doctor or nutritious food. Whilst advances in health and wellbeing have fuelled huge improvements in human welfare, stark health inequities remain both by geography and socio-economic status. Furthermore, COVID-19 rolled back years of progress, disrupting food supplies and overwhelming healthcare systems globally. Investments in health and wellbeing can close the gap. The provision of accessible healthcare services, scientific breakthroughs in disease treatment, improved nutrition and affordable housing can improve the quality of life and longevity for hundreds of millions of people. The funds in the new portfolio provide access to more investment areas and countries than previous funds on the CIRCA5000 platform. Check out some of the companies in the Health & Wellbeing fund.
