Andrew Waight, who holds 75% of the assets of CI Global Health Sciences in U.S.-based companies, is unconcerned about the political environment following Donald Trump's victory as U.S. president-elect.

"We really don't know what Trump's long-term policies are." says Waight. "He is so unpredictable. Going forward, I am sort of bullish about the opportunities because, one, the presidential cycle in the U.S. is behind us, and two, just the science that's going on. I can't emphasize enough just how exciting that science is."

Waight thinks that medical discoveries and initiatives making their way towards the market and being validated, "will produce the next Pfizers of the world." (U.S.-based health-care giant  Pfizer Inc. (PFE) provides multiple pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices to consumers.)
