Polar Capital Global Healthcare Trust plc

Healthcare is a growth sector in a low growth world.

Healthcare is a long-term, secular growth sector as ageing populations drive the demand and the need for increased healthcare provision. Global healthcare spending was over $7.6trn in 2014 and is projected to grow faster than GDP.* The political conundrum is how to deliver better healthcare to more people for less money. Healthcare companies with products or services that deliver demonstrable value and drive efficiency are well placed for growth.
