Boston Children's Portfolio Has Done Well Despite Challenging 12-15 Months, Says Philip Rotner, Chief Investment Officer | Q&A
Philip Rotner is the chief investment officer at Boston Children's Hospital, where he manages the hospital's endowment, pension, and short-term investment assets. In this interview, he explains why Boston Children's Hospital continues to be ranked as the number one pediatric hospital in the world, how Boston Children's built its proprietary investment model to support its mission of treating sick children, and how health system's don't ordinarily plan to sustain 12 months of losses caused by a pandemic. Although, Phil adds that investment markets have done just fine despite a challenging 12-15 months.
Healthcare is one of the largest sectors of the economy, both in the United States and globally. But it has lagged in terms of venture capital investment relative to the industry's size and potential for disruptive innovation.
