INVESTING FOR BETTER HEALTHCARE
At ARCHIMED, we have been convinced of the crucial role healthcare companies play in sustaining humanity’s well-being. During the last thirty years working in this industry, we have witnessed their tremendous contribution but also the potential risks emerging from poor control and management. The sanitary crisis that struck the world in 2020-22 has served as a wakeup call for many, revealing fragilities in our global healthcare system.
ARCHIMED uses financial resources and acumen to find, support and scale companies whose activities contribute to improve health outcomes at all levels. Our goal is to help companies achieving their role as providers of sustainable and life-changing solutions improving health conditions.
As an impact investor, we intend to guide healthcare actors towards building resilient and equitable healthcare systems. We firmly believe that the healthcare industry has all the required characteristics to embody this impact vision. We help develop businesses with products and services providing a greater purpose for human and animal health, strengthening their impacts, as well as raising awareness that only companies realizing their sustainability potential can endure and create long-term value.
ARCHIMED proves that being a market-leading impact driven investor in the healthcare industry is fully compatible with delivering great returns to our clients.
