Virologist and fund manager’s view of global healthcare opportunities

Despite the pandemic, the healthcare sector both domestically and internationally has actually underperformed many others, as non-Covid related treatments have been postponed or cancelled. So does the sector offer opportunities for the forward thinking, or will the changing nature of Covid keep undermining a ‘return to normal’?

Dr Bianca Ogden has a PhD in virology and a bird’s eye view of emerging healthcare opportunities as the portfolio manager of Platinum’s Global Healthcare Fund. In this podcast she shares:

  • The threat of Covid’s new variants, and how science is responding
  • Opportunities in global healthcare, and how they’ve been affected by the pandemic
  • Which sectors are most undervalued, and
  • Emerging technologies and their potential.
