Longevity on the rise – Constant growth in the US and its arrival in Europe

2022-08-09 - IOTW - Longevity
The significant growth of transaction volumes and the number of deals closed from 2017 to 2021 confirms the increasing importance of longevity in the US and Europe. For both markets, the number of deals almost doubled since 2017.

In the US, longevity has been an ongoing topic over the last five years. Financing volumes increased threefold from EUR 389m to EUR 1,057m. The data suggests that the interest in European longevity research has more recently arrived. While the annual financing volume in 2017 only amounted to EUR 25m (with 16 deals), financing volumes skyrocketed to EUR 262m (with 29 deals) in 2021.

Top investors participating in the US market show significantly higher deal activities and volumes compared to investors active in Europe. Interestingly, Kizoo Technology Ventures, a Germany based fund, was among the most active investors in the US.
