HEALTHCARE & EDUCATION
The healthcare and education sectors are set for continued growth driven by a range of factors: demographic shifts; government policy; the increasing involvement of the private sector; changing models of service provision and funding; and technical improvements in diagnosis and treatment.
Phoenix has significant experience investing in both sectors, including healthcare and education services, speciality pharmaceuticals, outsourcing, and medical equipment and devices. We form effective partnerships with exceptional teams and invest in businesses that have a reputation for high quality standards, have established and maintainable market positions, and have strong growth potential.
