The Altaris Philosophy

The foundation for each Altaris investment is our partnership with a motivated management team. Together, we seek to create an environment in which interests are aligned and actions are guided by a commitment to building long-term value. Working closely with our portfolio companies, we seek to leverage our extensive industry knowledge and relationships in an effort to drive equity capital appreciation.

Since establishing our first fund, Altaris has invested in 34 healthcare companies. Altaris is based in New York.


Altaris was founded by a team of professionals who left Merrill Lynch to establish a healthcare-dedicated investment firm. Altaris closed its first fund in 2004 and is now investing out of its third fund. The Altaris team has invested in a wide range of companies that operate across the healthcare industry, has supported numerous portfolio company acquisitions and strategic initiatives, and has generated positive returns for investors.
