Healthcare & Wellness
The healthcare and wellness industries are and have always been highly specialized industries, with no common ground with other industries; hence they require solid investors and people like our team here at Capital Corp Merchant Banking who excel at structuring funding for such projects as hospitals and hospital expansions, wellness centers, medical tourism projects, pharmaceutical projects, and biotech projects.
As a seasoned merchant banking group, we at Capital Corp have worked on such types of projects all over the world, including emerging economies, for well over 30 years. We are well-versed in not only bridging cultural gaps but in acquiring the sums needed in a project and in creating funding structures for our clients in the healthcare and wellness industries that are solid and reliable.
Funding Healthcare & Wellness Projects
A great feature in funding healthcare and wellness projects is the fact that:
1) Traditional funding instruments can and often are used;
2) NO special accommodations or arrangements need to be added on to a funding arrangement involving a hospital, wellness center, pharmaceutical product development or distribution, or biotech project.
The best case scenario for a project like pharmaceutical development is if you (as project promoter/owner) have a distribution agreement (agreement in which a third party that has signed a contract guaranteeing that they will be buying the owner's output for a certain length of time in the future) right from the start. Why? Because for investors it is a guarantee of return on their investment, not to mention that it is also a steady guaranteed payment on the debt of the equipment due to the fact that the pharmaceutical product is sold over the long term (thus, there is a guaranteed income).
For projects such as a wellness center or medical tourism development, the appeal of the project will lean on location, services offered, marketing development and coordination, and of course owner experience.
The Funding Process
On the business end of a healthcare or wellness project, the promoter/ project owner is required to produce essentially the same basic information and documents as he/she would in any other type of project:
• Business Plan
• Feasibility Study (if you have it)
• Any and all information and documents connected with the project's development or the technology to be used, etc.
What can often be the (only) tricky part of funding a healthcare or wellness project is assessing the technology and/or market; but a solid business plan, market strategy, and/or product off-take are often favored by investors in these types of deals.
