Anyone have any updated info on these funds? I'm thinking Redmile Group, BVF, Ecor1, Farallon's HC book, and any other SF Biotech fund I'm forgetting here. I'm very interested in learning more about these funds in general but specifically interested in more info about nuances in strategy, and interview processes. Also would be great to know what head hunters could put me in touch with any of these funds. I'm currently an analyst at a top five biopharma coverage group and would love to work at one of these funds eventually.

Hi everyone, As you may all know, we the Canucks of Canadia, have benefitted greatly (in most cases) from having a universal healthcare system. I know that our single payer health care system has its inefficiencies as it relates to wait times for procedures, organ donations, and high costs of providing care in some areas, but through regular discussions with fellow citizens I find that nobody is opposed to the system we currently have as a whole. While we may disagree on logistics, funding and operations, I think us Canadians all agree that we wouldn't want any other system. Ever since I moved

I am looking for Healthcare specific accounting questions or interview questions to consider for a healthcare IB role. Basically, other than the general valuation methodologies and other general IB questions. What should I be prepared for a technical interview? For example, for software companies is important to adjust EBITDA for coding expenses that are capitalized rather than expensed. Something similar for Healthcare? Most popular multiples that are used? Unusual valuation details that I should be aware of? Accounting details that I need to be aware of? Thanks

I am transitioning to a financial analyst role at a late-stage startup ($50+ million in sales expected this year) and was wondering what life is like at a startup. Those who work at a startup, how do you navigate being at such a young company? Have some of you worked at multiple startups? How do you go about securing more equity (I will be getting some stock options to start but nothing crazy)? What are exit opps (other than the company killing it and everyone getting rich) like? Possible to move to VC? This company is in the healthcare industry, not tech. Ik the answers to my questions will

Hi, hoping to see if anyone has insight or access to information that sheds insight on the top healthcare groups on the street? Are there certain firms that outperform in this area over others? I understand there are various verticals and sectors in Healthcare and some firms may outperform others in that particular area but was hoping to see overall wise, which firms would be the strongest in the Healthcare space for an overall healthcare investment banking experience. From research and previous threads it seems top groups HC overall: BB: 1.) GS/JPM 2.) Barclays/BAML 3.) Citi 4.) MS 5.) CS 6.)

Both industries are interesting and have a lot of developments happening within them. I know that Technology and Healthcare go hand in hand often - does this mean that the Healthcare group will cover a healthcare technology company or would that be covered by the Technology group, does anyone have any insight into how this works? Is one industry better for PE/VC than the other? It seems as though with TMT you could transition into a startup/tech company/VC/PE, it seems with healthcare it is more common that analysts would go into PE? Does anyone have any insight into this or could argues pros

After graduating I will be beginning my analyst role at a healthcare focused boutique in SF. I'm assuming the firms creating tests, providing hospital beds, ventilators, and telehealth will have plenty of work. Obviously deal flow will be drying up across almost all sectors with the imminent recession, but can anyone in the healthcare space provide insight on the industry right now? This may also be helpful to those who are industry-agnostic and beginning recruiting for SA roles.

Any recent reports on the industry (any and all verticals) would be greatly appreciated. Couldn't find anything beyond a few old ones on sketchy sites and some recent public MBB reports.

Hey guys, so as the title says, I managed to get an intro call with a healthcare IB MD. I've spoken to a couple of associates and analysts at other firms already but I feel as though the calls usually don't go anywhere. How do I impress this MD and leave a good impression ? I have absolutely no prior IB experience and am a recent graduate from a non-target school. I've been taking the initiative of learning basic modeling on my own. Does anyone have any tips to leave a good impression with this guy ? Thanks in Advance!

Got placed in a product group at one of GS/MS/JPM and am very excited to be here. If I were to consider buyside opportunities, I think I would LOVE to exit to a Healthcare focused firm or at least at a place where I can get lots of Healthcare exposure. I have no doctors in the family, was not a bio or chem major, and barely keep up with the industry at the moment, mostly because I barely keep up with any industry at all given I am fresh out of school and currently focusing strictly on my job. I would want Healthcare because I am genuinely a pretty intellectually curious person and would likely

Posting this to get a discussion circulating. If there is anyone else in the industry who has insight or perspectives on this would be great if you can share. Seems obvious that certain groups have been and will probably do well and stay busy through this shitstorm inclusive of groups like industry:Healthcare, product: DCM, Levfin What do other people think about booming sectors like Tech or sectors that may prove fruitful say such as Real Estate during this shitstorm Healthcare: obviously doing well TMT: doing well, i.e. all the IPO's recently, decent amount of M&A going on also, cloud etc

Curious about what kind of candidates healthcare and biotech-focused VCs look for. It seems like many partners have a Ph.D or an MBA - how necessary is that? I'm certainly aware there isn't just one path. For context, I am a graduating senior and deciding between three offers in MBB consulting, and BB healthcare investment banking (both at analyst level). I also have an opportunity to join a biotech startup instead. MBA or science master's degree are an option in the future! But the end goal is VC.

Do internship programs (or even analyst recruiting) for investment banks (specifically BB) accept a larger pool of people and then randomly assign them to different industry groups? Can one specifically target opportunities in certain verticals such as healthcare? I am asking because my major (at a target school) and interests are heavily skewed towards healthcare. Would it be a advantage to have specialized knowledge+interest in healthcare or would it limit me?

It seems as if Amazon has its hands in every cookie jar, healthcare is only just one of those jars. Ever since Amazon acquired wholesale pharmacy licenses, the healthcare industry has been on high alert. One example of this is CVS (the drugstore giant) buying Aetna (one of the biggest health insurers) for $69 billion

Questions for the veteran guys and gals here - does working at a MM IB (50-300M EV) that focuses M&A advisory to privately-held companies pigeon-hole you in any terms? In other words, does lack of public sector experience disqualify you from lateraling to a BB or EB further down the road? I assume it might help with MM PE but only a guess.

All politics aside and if this really happened. Would it still be as profitable for PE firms to continue buying healthcare tech firms? Would there be as much money involved in the healthcare system if most healthcare-related companies were under extreme scrutiny on prices by the gov.

Jeff Bezos is redirecting Amazon to head back into the healthcare sector, as a distributor for prescription-drugs. This, however, poses a plethora of obstacles such as licensing, third parties (health insurers), and so on.
Amazon's success in this sector comes down to a middleman.

An overview of the typical growth equity interview process, some fit / industry (HCIT and B2B SaaS) questions they'll probably ask, general finance questions more relevant in GE, etc. would be great. I've only found generic overviews with search, and I also have additional questions. I will
