Fund manager says there’s investment opportunities in femtech

Investors are being urged to consider the underrepresented sector of women’s healthcare, according to fund manager Philip Ripman of Storebrand Asset Management. Ripman, who manages the $1bn Storebrand Global Solutions fund, said the area has been “under-researched and underrepresented for a very long time”. Beyond breast cancer, only 1% of pharmaceutical research funding in 2020 went to women’s health, according to a Mckinsey report. Of medical tech funding, only 2% was focused on non-cancer-related women’s health. The shift towards considering women’s healthcare, or femtech, is growing, said Ripman. There are now numerous stocks within the Storebrand’s fund that focus on women’s healthcare, including Hologic, Becton Dickinson and Gedeon Richter.
