If we think about our grandparents and what an intervention like the one we mentioned would have meant, we will be able to realise and value the full magnitude of the importance of technology in the development of medicine in the last 50 years. Technological advances that we recognise not only in surgery, but also in the diagnosis, development and subsequent treatment of diseases.
  • The evolution of emerging societies.
    It increasingly demands healthier and more ecologically sustainable products.
  • The ageing of the population and the increase in life expectancy.
    The older the people, the more health care that is needed and for more years. These two factors are of particular relevance for the growth of healthcare technology.
  • Collaboration with other technologies in constant development.
    Medical technology collaborates with other technological areas that have experienced tremendous growth in recent years, such as smartphones and big data.
The recent saturation of health systems has highlighted the need for greater investment in the health sector to enable the generation of true economic and social growth in countries
A healthier population is a more economically active population. A determining factor for governments and companies capable of recognising a great ally in medical technology:
  • Development of new devices for early diagnosis.
    The importance of early diagnosis of some diseases, such as cancer, significantly improves their treatment and recovery time.
  • Greater accessibility to medical appointments through telemedicine.
    Thanks to technology, we can have remote medical care, with the direct benefit of reducing waiting lists, optimising doctor-patient time and, in the case of the elderly, that of their relatives.
  • Improvement of the quality of life of chronic patients.
    Examples such as diabetes patients who can more easily and accurately control their blood glucose levels or dependant patients who, thanks to hyperconnectivity with their family members, can enjoy a life closer to normality.
  • New instruments and techniques capable of drastically reducing the mortality rate of some diseases.
    As in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases that, thanks to artificial tubes, has seen the number of deaths reduced by more than half.

Evolution of spending in the health sector.

Our investment universe covers the entire health sector, with the exception of medicines. This means that risk exposure is lower, being able to generate positive returns even in difficult economic situations, with a long-term growth potential greater than that of other sectors:

  • Companies that apply the progress of new technologies to health in all stages of the disease, from the diagnosis of the disease to possible rehabilitation.
  • Investment focused primarily on the cardiology subsector, managed care, and life sciences supply.
  • It includes companies engaged in the production of devices and both medical and surgical procedures used in health care.

What do the experts think?

  • Even in the case of equities, the sector has a low correlation with the rest of the market, which allows for diversification.
