Health Care Innovators & Disruptors​
Health care is full of disruptors.  They're very exciting, and that usually means whatever was there didn't work very well.  You're happy that they're being disrupted, and that there's something new coming that works.

In our latest podcast, Alger Health Sciences Portfolio Manager Teresa McRoberts explains what factors have been driving health care outperformance, and why the sector is now so driven by innovation and disruption.

Risk Disclosures: Investing in the stock market involves risks, and may not be suitable for all investors. Growth stocks tend to be more volatile than other stocks as their prices tend to be higher in relation to their companies’ earnings and may be more sensitive to market, political, and economic developments. A significant portion of assets will be invested in healthcare companies, which may be significantly affected by competition, innovation, regulation, and product obsolescence, and may be more volatile than the securities of other companies. Private placements are offerings of a company’s securities not registered with the SEC and not offered to the public, for which limited information may be available. Such investments are generally considered to be illiquid. Active trading may increase transaction costs, brokerage commissions, and taxes, which can lower the return on investment.
