We will be specifically looking at high value deals; novel structures; and companies using (for them) new forms of financing such as high-yield bonds.

Themes

Financial activity in the sector has been revolving around several key themes. 

Financing in the medical device field has been flowing first and foremost towards the diagnostics and treatment of Covid. One interesting development in this vein has been the funding and introduction of AI-designed Covid-19 drugs. 

Funds have also been flowing towards the development of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease drugs. Companies have particularly sought funding for the development of new biopsy assays.
