Changing Demographics

We see inequality in healthcare

The quality of healthcare is inconsistent, with variations in treatment outcomes both between and within countries and among providers. Additionally, there are unmet patient needs due to a lack of appropriate therapeutic and diagnostic solutions, and healthcare costs are rising along with increasing, inefficient expenditure.

"In the early days of my business degree, I always regretted not studying medicine instead. I did not have the guts to change and follow my heart. Since then I changed my strategy to focus on the things that inspire me and that I think are really important. The strategy we deploy in healthcare at Summa makes me hope for the future. Now more than ever, we need our healthcare systems to be resilient and provide better health at a sustainable cost. Investing in companies that can help nudge our healthcare systems in the right direction is a humbling and inspiring task."
