Our Investment Strategy
ARCHIMED invests in the healthcare industries at the global level and more specifically in profitable small and midsize companies. Investments range from ten million to one billion euros. ARCHIMED can buy from and partner with families, founders, managers and Corporates. We can also take companies private or bring them to public markets. Following investments, ARCHIMED typically focuses on growth and business development-related priorities, such as innovation, internationalization, acquisitions or capacity expansion.
€10M to 1B
Through its discretionary funds, ARCHIMED invests between 10 million and 1 billion euros in leading companies. This can be split between upfront and follow-on investments. This funding allows for acquisitions as well as R&D, industrial or commercial investments.
€5B - 30B
ARCHIMED’s currently managed funds represent more than 5 billion euros of commitments. Since the year 2000, ARCHIMED’s Leadership Team managed and invested in healthcare companies representing an aggregated value above 30 billion euros.
All ARCHIMED funds have always been at the most demanding levels in terms of Impact engagement. All corresponding investments contribute to one of the five Healthcare Objectives that were defined in accordance with Sustainable Development Goal #3.
ARCHIMED invests for good by focusing investments on a number of health improvement objectives.
We make sure funds are channeled to the right sectors, companies, entrepreneurs and teams, but also to the right charity actions and research programs, to deliver better health outcomes.
ARCHIMED is investing across the various healthcare industries and is organized accordingly, with 7 prioritized healthcare sectors and their dedicated teams:
In Vitro Diagnostics
Life Science Tools & Biologic Services
Through our proprietary market segmentation, we split healthcare industries into sub-sectors.
Each of our sectors represents between 10% and 30% of our investments, allowing for a healthy diversification of fund exposure.
Our MedSeg is split into more than 400 sub-sectors which are individually assessed by our sector and impact teams and consequently prioritized in terms of investment focus.
We believe in the interdependence between human, animal and environmental health: there is only one health.
