Bruce N. Jacobs, CFA Managing Partner

“I love the innovation in the medical technology industry. With vast unmet medical needs, and a clear mandate to reduce health care costs, there are endless opportunities for companies to innovate and bring new products to market. As a result, the maturation of companies’ new product pipelines creates exciting investment opportunities.”
