US Treasury can’t restrain M&A boom, says healthcare star

The US Treasury will struggle to stand in the way of blockbuster merger and acquisition activity in the healthcare sector, despite discussing means of restraining large-scale activity, Citywire AAA-rated Christophe Eggmann has said.

Eggmann, who manages the Julius Baer EF Health Innovation fund, was speaking to Citywire Global on October 20, shortly after it emerged that the US Treasury is trying to limit tax inversion deals, where US companies attempting takeovers relocate their domiciles to low-tax jurisdictions.

In this video, Eggmann highlights how high profile deals, notably Pfizer's attempt to takeover Allergan, are still likely to go ahead. He also discusses how he has taken advantage of the recent correction in the biotech sector.
