Healthy returns from transforming medicine
Global Biotech fund
Arctic Aurora Biotech Select is a specialised global healthcare UCITS fund. The fund invests in leading innovative small to midsize biotech companies supplemented with holdings in larger cash-generating companies to maximize risk-adjusted return.
The fund provides investors with an exposure to a large number of biotech companies leading the development of new, science-based medicines that significantly improve the quality of life for patients, at the same time as benefitting society and possessing high return potential. The medical need is large and growing, due in part to developments in demography and life-style.
Selecting winning biotech companies requires a specialised investment team with deep knowledge and experience from biology and clinical trials and the ability to understand commercial potential. The fund has a strong emphasis on risk management through portfolio construction to control higher expected volatility.
Risk diversification is achieved by limiting the size of positions in earlier-stage companies and having a balanced mix of cash positive and non-cash positive companies.
The portfolio has approximately 50-70 holdings and may include up to 10% in unlisted equities and an additional 10% in pre-IPO companies.
The fund has a strong focus on the quality of assets in a company’s pipeline and their commercial potential. The efficacy and safety data of drug candidates reported from clinical trials are studied thoroughly to evaluate the return/risk profile for the companies. Investment positions in earlier-stage biotech firms are limited in size to control project-specific risk.
