Healthcare is a unique and specialized industry, with characteristics that make it difficult and complex for many investors. Regulatory and product approval requirements are demanding and uncertain in outcome. Science and technology are constantly changing and subject to subtleties; to understand these requires highly specialized medical experience, know-how, and training. The complexities make it essential for successful investors to have extensive specialized medical, business, and policy expertise integrated in their team.
