Presented By New England Healthcare Executives

Join us for a panel discussion of the past, present and future trends in life science financial markets. Healthcare companies have livened the public stock markets with significant gains over the last five years including a 150% increase in the NYSE ARCA Biotech Index (BTK) as of January 22nd and over 160 IPOs and significant M&A activity. However, the BTK has dropped over 25% in the last six months creating new uncertainties driven by drug pricing, data, expectations, execution and many other factors. Our panel includes experts from across the industry that are on the front lines. Let’s hear what they have so say about the future moving forward.
