HLTH: Put Your Money Where the
Impact Is

Impact investing offers an opportunity to refocus on the fundamentals when funding new health technologies and digital health solutions. Instead of being swayed solely by the attention-grabbing headlines of press releases, the focus should shift towards understanding the potential impact these innovations can have on society. It raises the important question of how shareholder profits and social good can coexist harmoniously. We have to figure out a way to strike the perfect balance between financial returns and creating meaningful societal benefits. By embracing this approach, investors can direct their capital towards ventures that not only generate financial returns, but also contribute to the greater social good in the healthcare sector. The time is always right to do what’s right.
