Digital Health

Technology revolutionizing health care

Digital health solutions are transforming the health care landscape. Our investment teams use propriety research and industry expertise to find opportunities in one of the fastest-growing segments in health care.

Why invest in digital health?

Digitalization is revolutionizing the health care sector.

With research and development contributing to breakthroughs that would previously have been unimaginable, it has the potential to markedly improve the quality of medical services and curb rising costs.

Digital health is one of the fastest growing segments in health care, opening up attractive prospects for investors with long-term investment horizons. 

Digitalization as a growth driver

The medical world is far from immune to the effects of the digital revolution; indeed, the health care sector offers particularly fertile ground for the methods and tools used in digitalization. Many areas of research in medicine today, such as genetic sequencing and the genetic analysis of entire population groups, feature an extremely high density of data.

Support from systems that make use of artificial intelligence (AI) can considerably speed up this type of work. Digitalization also allows existing processes to be applied in a way that is not only more precise, but also faster and entails fewer side effects – a prime example being robots in operating theaters. Furthermore, with factors such as the increasing complexity of modern medicine and demographic changes (for example the aging population) driving health care costs upward at an alarming rate, digitalization can also help by improving efficiency through the optimization of digital processes. This constellation makes digital health a real growth market.

Our digital health investment fund

The Credit Suisse (Lux) Digital Health Equity Fund offers investors the opportunity to invest in three subthemes: research and development, treatments, and efficiency. The fund focuses on pure-play1 companies that have developed innovative technology applications capable of fundamentally changing the health care system, lowering the cost of health care, and/or improving patient outcomes. The portfolio typically consists of 40 to 60 stocks selected through bottom-up fundamental analysis.2

The fund applies exclusions and integrates ESG3 considerations into the investment process in line with the principles of the Credit Suisse Asset Management’s Sustainable Investing Policy.
