Health Heroes

iShares Healthcare innovation ETF

If there’s one thing we learnt from the last few years, it’s that we were underprepared. New viruses like COVID-19 and existing diseases like cancer affect us all. These companies are some of the leaders in their fields developing new drugs, medical devices and more to save and prolong lives. They’re the ones preparing us for tomorrow.

Why now?

Ageing population: We’re all living longer. That and rising income means a higher share of spending is likely to go towards healthcare in the future

Regulation: Companies in this space tend to benefit from significant tax credits for Research & Development (R&D), market exclusivity and fast-tracking of approvals.

Low cyclicality: Healthcare spending isn’t very dependent on the usual business cycle. You can see this through the comparatively low sector correlation to global indices.

This theme invests in companies all across the water supply chain, from sanitary equipment to water distribution and treatment.

When you invest your money is at risk. You might end up with more than you put in - or you might end up with less.
