Highland Capital, a private equity firm in Dallas, Texas has recently provided the means for South Korea to improve their healthcare. The need for more stable healthcare and a willingness to combine expertise across the US, North America and Asia is the driving force behind the financial support. The realization that marketing forces and demographics have changed in recent years is another incentive to provide coordinated support.
The focus, particularly in the Asia healthcare marketplace is on value-based reimbursement models. Some of these models reflect the unique culture of the Korean people and their unique healthcare needs. Other models reflect a combination of what works for the demographic and what doesn’t work.
Highland Capital investors will get opportunities to streamline healthcare services and work alongside South Korea’s National Pension Service (NPS) to meet objectives. The partnership will benefit the healthcare companies in South Korea and incorporate best practices. It will also investment returns for individual investors in this middle market.
The new fund is the first healthcare oriented fund to be launched by Highland Capital Management Korea Ltd, an affiliate of Highland Capital Management Ltd. It is important to note that the increased interest in the healthcare sector has only been realized in Asia in the past two years. This increased interest is one of the many reasons why Highland Capital has decided to invest in this market.
Highland Capital’s track record in healthcare and its commitment to providing financial support is what attracted South Korea’s NPS to the project. This project fund will benefit healthcare industries throughout North America and Asia.
