Those who invest in this new fund are looking to meet certain goals for their investments in the healthcare sector. They are not pleased with just throwing some money at healthcare stocks and seeing what sticks. Highland and the NPS know this. They have crafted a fund that enables investors to enjoy cross country opportunities that may exist between South Korea, China, and the United States.
Highland Capital has a long history in the healthcare industry in terms of its investments. In fact, more than half of the fund’s performance for the last fifteen years has been directly attributed to the healthcare sector.
Those who invest in this fund are looking to capitalize on mid-cap type healthcare companies that may exposure to both the US and Asian markets. They want to gain from the potential for companies to expand into both of those particular markets. In other words, the investments in this fund are a bit more sophisticated than what one might find in a standard investment fund offered in their domestic markets.
Highland sees a lot of value in still remaining in these markets. They point to the aging population in the United States as well as greater access to healthcare services in Asia making for a profitable run coming up for a variety of healthcare industry companies. They also say that the relative under performance of stocks in this industry compared to the rest of the market make them a great value for the future. It is really high-time that this type of fund was made available, and now it is finally here. Visit hcp.com to know more.
