Hot Investor Mandate: Major Financial Institution with Billions in AUM Actively Seeks Therapeutics and Medical Device Investment Opportunities, Mostly in Europe

12 May

A major financial institution based in Western Europe managing venture capital funds totaling to several billion, is significantly focused on life sciences. The firm both invests in venture capital funds and makes direct investments in seed-stage and early-stage companies. Typically the firm invests EUR 0.5-8 million initially, with further capital reserved for follow-on rounds. The firm primarily invests in companies in Europe.

The firm is interested in opportunities in biotech and medical devices, and may potentially invest in digital health. The firm is not interested in diagnostics. The firm has a broad interest in early stage therapeutics (mainly First-In-Class), including small molecules, biologics, cell and gene therapies, and all indication areas including cardiovascular, neurology, and rare diseases. The firm invests from preclinical-stage companies through to Phase II.

The firm prefers to invest in companies based in the country where their headquarters are located, but will consider opportunities elsewhere in Europe: for companies in this country, the firm is typically a lead or co-lead investor, but in other regions the firm prefers to be a follow-on investor.
