Biotech & Healthcare
QVT has long been a recognized investor in the biotech and healthcare industries, in both public and private markets. QVT was among the earliest and largest investors in Pharmasset and Medivation. QVT seeded and remains the largest investor in Roivant Sciences Ltd.
Energy & Shipping
QVT is a frequent and well-known investor in both the shipping and energy sectors and employs a dedicated team to cover these areas of focus. QVT frequently invests in public companies in this space and also has experience acquiring, owning and selling maritime vessels directly.
QVT’s longstanding specialty in structured finance includes long and short strategies involving mortgage-backed and other asset-backed securities and related products.
QVT emphasizes idiosyncratic opportunities, especially highly complex or otherwise misunderstood securities or sectors. We at times employ activist tactics to catalyze value or maximize recovery. We lend our broad experience in litigation to nearly every corner of the portfolio as well as pursue direct litigation financing opportunities.
QVT has been an early, and at times, majority investor in private technology companies in the U.S. and Asia, with a special interest in the design and fabrication of semiconductors.
