A new investment fund has been launched to transform patient care through investment in digital health and care technologies.
The RYSE FCC Fund has been launched by charity and think tank Future Care Capital (FCC) and RYSE Asset Management LLP.
Andrew Whelan, Chair of Trustees at FCC, (pictured) said: “As an independent charity, Future Care Capital is constantly exploring new ways to create social impact. We are delighted to announce our partnership with RYSE which allows us to ‘put our money where our mouth is’ and support investments aligned with our charitable mission of improving health and care.
“By investing in innovation and technology, the new RYSE FCC Fund will deliver tangible benefits for our beneficiaries – all those in receipt of care. We are excited to partner with RYSE who share our commitment to improving care and have a strong track record as an investment manager.”
Areas of investment could include digital apps to Artificial Intelligence and everything in between.
Shabir Chowdhary, Managing Partner at RYSE Asset Management LLP, said: “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative and established charity, FCC, that is active within health and social care research and policy. The management team at FCC has shown great vision in backing pioneering companies at a time in which we believe health and social care provision will need to evolve. We are keen to engage with and obtain the support of other organisations that share in the RYSE FCC collective vision.”
