Investment summary

Worldwide Healthcare Trust (WWH) is managed by Sven Borho and Trevor Polischuk of specialist healthcare investor OrbiMed. The managers are positive on the outlook for healthcare stocks in 2019, following a volatile period for global equities so far in 2018. They see reduced political pressure on the sector following the US mid-term elections and believe there will be more of a focus on company fundamentals. The managers cite a series of novel therapeutic products under development, which could meaningfully bolster the revenues and earnings of companies that can successfully bring these drugs to market. In addition, they suggest that an increase in mergers and acquisitions could also focus investor attention on the healthcare sector’s potential.
