SINGAPORE, March 2020 – Quadria Capital, a leading independent healthcare-focused private equity firm in Asia, today announced that it has successfully closed its latest fund, Quadria Capital Fund II, at its increased hard cap far exceeding its US$400 million target. Investors include leading global asset managers, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance, healthcare corporates and development finance institutions across the US, Europe and Asia.
Abrar Mir, Managing Partner of Quadria Capital, said, “We are extremely excited about the successful close of our second fund as we build on our consistent strategy to capture the region’s immense healthcare opportunity. Asia’s healthcare market is expected to reach US$4.2 trillion in the next five years, exceeding that of the US and Europe combined today. It will continue to grow at 12 percent annually, compared to 5 percent growth globally.”
Quadria Capital Fund II has already made two milestone investments into global leading healthcare businesses. These include AKUMS Drugs & Pharmaceuticals, India’s largest pharma CDMO company, and the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, the world’s largest gastric sciences hospital, in partnership with the Mayo Clinic Network.
“We are pleased to be supported by like-minded global investors to deliver sustainable impact beyond compelling financial returns. As a strategic partner to the healthcare businesses that we invest in, we bring to bear Quadria’s proprietary healthcare ecosystem of healthcare professionals, companies, technologies and expertise to support long-term growth and value creation,” Abrar Mir added.
Quadria Capital focuses on partnering with high-potential healthcare companies in the region to nurture future industry leaders through its active and collaborative investment strategy, while seeking to generate attractive returns for its investors. The firm currently manages total active capital of over US$1 billion. The firm has made over 20 investments in leading healthcare businesses across Asia which have cumulatively treated over 17.5 million patients, managed 2,500 hospital beds, funded 2,600 doctors and clinical staff and created over 11,000 jobs.
The firm also has the region’s largest healthcare-dedicated investment and operating team on the ground with over 20 professionals with complementary skillsets across clinical services, operations, strategy and investment. Together, they hold a combined 230 years of direct healthcare experience, with members having held key management positions with healthcare companies around the globe.
“Countries in South and Southeast Asia are home to nearly a third of the world’s population and shoulder almost half of the world’s diseases burden. However, they receive just 5 percent of the global expenditure, and this severe underfunding of public health expenditure is challenging their development. This compounds the other issues faced by these regions including demographic changes such as fast-growing and ageing populations, exposure to chronic diseases as well as increased exposure to infectious diseases – including Covid-19 – that have been spreading exponentially recently,” said Dr Amit Varma, Managing Partner of Quadria Capital.
Quadria Capital is consistently recognised for both its investment and impact performance, having won the Healthcare investor of the Year award by HealthInvestor Asia in 2019 and is ranked by the Global Impact Investing Rating System (GIIRS) in the top quintile amongst global funds for its impact and ESG performance.
Some of the companies that Quadria Capital has invested in include:
Credit Suisse and Berchwood Partners acted as the placement agent for the fundraise.
