Private financial markets: The Road to Next

Market trends affecting investor-backed private companies

The Road to Next series explores investment trends defining the private financial markets and covers strategies, liquidity concerns, market dynamics, and more. Our latest edition explores the record-breaking surge in health tech expansion-stage activity this year, which has already seen deal value and count exceed all previous highs. Health tech benefits from a wide array of macro and key market conditions, spanning demographics, the effects of COVID-19, increasing viability of important underlying technologies, and more. Looking forward, if companies within the space continue to mature, dealmaking should remain strong, and liquidity will keep flowing.

Health tech stands poised to help transform healthcare throughout the coming decade

Ongoing digital transformation, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the rising cost of healthcare have pushed expansion-stage dealmaking to new heights. The health tech sector is no exception, enjoying a record-breaking surge with no plans to slow down in 2022.

  • What’s fueling the fire for health tech? In the latest edition of Road to Next, we explore the primary forces driving health tech’s surge in private financial markets, specific industry niches that are benefitting, and where this investment trend is taking us to next year—and beyond.
  • Spotlight on consumer empowerment: We also examine the consumerization of healthcare; health tech’s evolving role in customer loyalty, data privacy, and ownership; and how health tech enterprises can best meet patient demand.
