This latest fundraising round follows Hasten’s acquisition of the Chinese mainland rights for five cardiovascular and metabolism drugs from Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited in March 2022. Headquartered in Singapore, CBC Group has assets under management of over $7 billion. Earlier this week M42, a joint venture between G42 Healthcare and Mubadala Health, made its first investment by acquiring Diaverum, a global renal care service provider.
