AVIVO GROUPAl Masah Capital distributes shares of AVIVO Group, a regional healthcare operator. AVIVO Group was established in 2011, with the objective to create a regional investment healthcare company of primary care and diagnostic centers offering a wide spectrum of healthcare services and having a footprint stretching from the GCC to North Africa. AVIVO Group’s investment strategy consists of targeting well located and profitable healthcare assets offering significant growth opportunities with a special focus on the lower to middle income segment. AVIVO Group currently operates 32 assets which include a portfolio of hospitals, medical centers, diagnostic centers and pharmacies across the GCC. The company currently employs more than 248 doctors and services more than 1.3 million patients per year.
We believe in the tremendous opportunities offered by the healthcare sector in the region and see significant growth in the future given the fast-growing population and especially the upcoming mandatory health insurance requirements in many of the GCC countries, which are expected to make insurance coverage mandatory for both GCC nationals and expatriates. This will have a significant positive impact on the region’s healthcare sector, where more than 50% of the patients are still not insured.
