The Rise of Altium Capital
After the end of Visium Asset Management, Jacob Gottlieb was ready to move on and establish a new firm. Altium Capital is the vehicle he is now using to run a successful healthcare investment business. The firm is benefiting from the good reputation of Jacob Gottlieb as a top investor in the healthcare industry. Altium is building a strong portfolio with investment in a few firms.
Altium has made a 5.61 percent investment at Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. Oramed Pharmaceuticals is developing alternative medical treatments.

This method is going to reduce treatment costs, reduction of infections and improve patient comfort.
Other companies in Altium’s portfolio include Amarin, which develops cardiovascular drugs and Oragenics which develops antibiotics against infectious diseases.

He has added senior investment professionals in hedge funds and healthcare sector to assist him in running a successful business. The focus of the company is to generate from equity-focused products. Combined with fundamental analysis, Altium is ready to make investments that guarantee a high risk-reward ratio.
Altium Capital recently released its growth report, and the numbers are impressive. In five months of operation since opening doors in June 2018, it had made 7.37 percent returns. The results show that the company is most likely to perform very well in the long-term. Gottlieb is taking every possible measure to ensure that the ghost of Visium Management does not crawl into the new firm. He is observing due diligence, and that’s why the results have started coming out true. By seeking out firms that offer important health and medical treatment methods, the firm will boost the healthcare sector while at the same time befitting from the proceeds of growth in top companies. Gottlieb is a big name in the industry, and his prowess will come out clearly as Altium Capital does more business.
