Hot Life Science Investor Mandate 2: European Hedge Fund Seeking Molecular Diagnostics

31 Jul

A hedge fund with multiple European Offices is looking to invest in growth, expansion and roll-out stage companies, primarily in Series D-E rounds, and sometimes in Series C rounds. Initial investments are typically $8-10 million. The firm is generally focused on Western Europe but is also open to opportunities in North America.

The firm’s primary investment themes are personalized medicine and agriculture. Within personalized medicine, the firm focus subsector is molecular diagnostics, but other areas of diagnostics technology may be of interest; however the firm is typically not interested in patient monitoring technologies or care management. The firm has also invested in medical devices, but is only interested in devices that are highly disruptive or which represent completely new markets. The firm will consider any indication but is particularly interested in oncology and neurology. The firm only invests in life science companies that have products which have attained approval or which are very close to approval and have significant amounts of data. 

The firm prefers to invest in companies at the early commercialization stage that have completed development of a technology but require capital to expand sales and marketing efforts. The firm is also open to early growth investments in companies with existing revenues. The firm is currently focused on investing in privately held companies but will also consider investing in publicly traded companies.
