Private Equity

Private investment activity and corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A) continue to eclipse records in the healthcare and life science industries. As deal activity rises, competition for investments is growing fierce.

This intense competition for assets, coupled with tight buy-side timelines and complex deal evaluations, requires a sophisticated healthcare advisory partner.

Kx Advisors brings deep healthcare subject matter expertise, data-driven insights, quantitative rigor, and fast-paced and responsive client service to all our acquisition and partnering work.
