Which sub sectors does PE invest most in?

HBI has been analysing its investment database and asking “who is investing in what?” It may not be the most attractive sector financially or reputationally at the moment, but elderly care has the most active PE+* investments in EMEA, with 17% of all active investments. Hospitals is the second most invested-in sub sector, with 14% of all active investments.

HBI Intelligence reports 631 active PE, family office and infrastructure fund investments in health and care services across EMEA. As well as elderly care and hospitals, investments in companies involved in multiple areas of care (adult/child/elderly) were also common, accounting for 12% of active investments. Dentistry and digital accounted for 10% and 7% respectively.

The quantity of investments is measured in terms of volume of investments, rather than value.

The HBI Investment Database, which allows you to search by country and year as well as by sub sector, is now available to HBI Intelligence subscribers.


*Investments by private equity, family offices and infrastructure funds.
