HPE Europe 2021

June 23-24, 2021 | Two Day Virtual Event
We are delighted to launch our annual HPE Europe signature event in conjunction with our strategic partner EHCPEA.

This year, recognising that as we are still unable to meet in person, we will be going ahead with two exclusive, virtual extended lunch time sessions. We will be joined by investors including key players from the private equity community, healthcare companies and operators, advisers and health industry experts. The combination will allow us to share their insights and strategies in shaping the future of healthcare and healthcare investing and discussing the latest and most important trends in HPE.





We are delighted to welcome Dr. Ali Parsa, CEO & Founder of Babylon Health, as our keynote speaker, in conversation with London Managing Partner Hamid Yunis.

Dr Parsa is a visionary healthcare engineer whose revolutionary AI and digital company is shaping the future of healthcare. Described as the UK’s healthtech giant, Babylon Health will go public in the US via SPAC. The merger with Alkuri Global Acquisition would give the combined company a pro forma equity value of $4.2bn.

Where do the Opportunities Exist?

The panel will share their perspectives on what opportunities exist for investors and recipients of investment in the healthcare sector. In particular, the effects of COVID-19 and what this means for the sector going forward.

Healthcare Financing Challenges and Opportunities During COVID and Beyond

The pandemic created both challenges in managing credit risk and opportunities to gain market share for lenders in the coming year. This panel of leading credit professionals will discuss the outlook for leveraged loan activity and trends in terms and pricing.

Health Services M&A in France, Germany and the United Kingdom

We explore each jurisdiction in a summarizing, comparative discussion with panelists from each country exploring the current and forecast situation in healthcare M&A.

Evaluating Value and Bridging Expectations in 2021 and Beyond

Given the competitive landscape, investing in healthcare companies is more complex, but potentially more lucrative, than ever. Our panelists will discuss valuations in the current market, opportunities for value creation in 2021 and beyond and the continued impact of COVID 19 and its implications for the healthcare PE community.

Investment Opportunities in Life Sciences

Perspectives on investment opportunities in life sciences companies as well as outsourcing providers in life sciences such as CMO, CRO and technology providers with a particular reference to the effects of COVID-19 and what this means for the sector going forward.
