47927-014: OrbiMed Asia Partners II, L.P. Fund

Description

Health care is a specialized sector within the private equity asset class, with limited distribution across mainstream institutional investors. This is especially true for Asian health care private equity, which operates in a sector with a deficit in overall spending.
