Great Point Partners invests in growing, profitable health care companies that are led by management teams focused on achieving accelerated and sustainable growth.
Companies choose to work with Great Point Partners because of our health care expertise, our industry contacts and our focus on helping strong management teams grow their businesses. While we serve as active board members and strategic advisors, we leave the day-to-day operations of our portfolio companies to management teams who we have decided to back. Ultimately Great Point Partners serves as an experienced investor and partner to management teams who share our objectives of continued growth and success.
Our Value Proposition to Management Teams
Significant Investment Experience Drives Appreciation
Great Point Partners’ Private Equity Managing Directors have more than 100 collective years of private equity experience, averaging approximately 20 years per Managing Director. Supporting our Managing Directors are a talented team of investment professionals in our Greenwich office with a singular focus on investing in and building health care companies. From the time we invest in a company to an exit, 5 to 8 years down the road, a typical Great Point company sees a three-fold increase in value.
Expertise in Sourcing and Financing Tuck-in Acquisitions That Accelerate Growth
For most of our platform investments, tuck-in acquisitions provide an excellent way to expand product lines and expand geographically. However, to do this well, you need expertise and a dedicated person building your acquisition pipeline. Great Point excels at sourcing strategic tuck-in acquisitions and arranging the required debt financing that does not require business owners to provide a personal guarantee or take further dilution. Great Point has a team dedicated to sourcing, structuring and executing acquisitions for its portfolio companies, and the firm has averaged over 6 tuck-in acquisitions per portfolio company, more than any other health care private equity firm.
Health Care Expertise
Great Point Partners focuses solely on health care investments. We form specific investment theses around subsectors that capture particular tailwinds that exist in the health care ecosystem. We then contact the management teams who are building leading businesses within those subsectors of health care to introduce Great Point and articulate our investment thesis and value proposition. When you meet with Great Point, our industry work is already complete, and the conversation is centered around the various strategies to further grow your business.
Recognized Sponsorship Value
Great Point Partners is recognized internationally as being one of the most innovative and successful investors in the health care industry. Our investment conveys a valuable endorsement to growing companies that opens access to lower interest rate debt financing and other benefits.
Significant Investment Professional Financial Commitment
Approximately 8% of the capital invested in each of our private equity investments comes from the Great Point team. This ratio is very high among private equity firms. We align our interests with our managers, profiting or losing when they do, hence, we “eat our own cooking.” This high co-investment ratio comforts management teams that a commitment by Great Point is both a personal and fiduciary one on behalf of our limited partners.

Substantial Capital Resources
We currently manage approximately $1 billion of equity capital. Capital for our funds has been committed from world-renowned foundations, endowments and family offices.
Deep Financial Network
We have long-standing relationships with senior lenders, having completed over $500 million of debt financings since our first investment in 2006. These lenders provide more financing, more flexible terms and remove all founder personal guarantees once Great Point becomes an investor.
We enhance the value of your business through sourcing tuck-in acquisitions, executive and board recruiting, and strategic and financial advice. Many of our CEOs ultimately join our CEO Advisory Board, serving on the Boards of other GPP companies and investing in or alongside Great Point funds.
Commitment to Clinical Excellence
Great Point Partners recognizes that a commitment to clinical excellence is core to the success and sustainability of any health care services business. We invest significantly in our portfolio companies to ensure that we are collectively adhering to the highest levels of quality for your customers and your patients.
