Singapore: 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.
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.
Some of the companies that Quadria Capital has invested in include:
- Medica Synergie – the largest hospital chain in Eastern India
- Soho Global Health – Indonesia’s leading integrated pharmaceutical and healthcare company
- Concord Biotech – a leading global firm in immunosuppressant and oncology pharmaceuticals
- FV Hospital – leading JCI-accredited, tertiary care hospital in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
- Medical Specialists Asia – Southeast Asia’s leading doctor network with over 100 doctors
- Strand Life Sciences – a globally recognised leader in oncology pathology and bioinformatics
- Healthcare at Home – India’s largest integrated home care network
- Lablink – One of the largest pathology businesses in Southeast Asia and the largest in-hospital laboratory business in Malaysia
