HQL primarily invests in the life sciences (including biotechnology, pharmaceutical, diagnostics, managed healthcare, medical equipment, hospitals, healthcare information technology and services, devices and supplies), agriculture and environmental management industries. The Fund's objective is to provide long-term capital appreciation through investments in companies in the life sciences industry believed to have significant potential for above-average long-term growth.
