We collaborate with our portfolio company’s management team to improve operational performance, add executive and Board talent, create business development opportunities, and develop liquidity strategies.
FFC believes that experience and specialization in the healthcare industry are required to manage risk and generate consistent and attractive returns. The healthcare industry represents a vast and complex network of interconnected entities which include providers, payers, suppliers, information technology developers, and regulators that must work together to make the system function efficiently. Since FFC has invested across the entire healthcare industry, we believe we have a unique perspective, network, and ability to help create value for entrepreneurs and other shareholders.
