“UnitedHealth is one of the largest healthcare companies in the world and a market leader in both its insurance and healthcare services (Optum) businesses. We initiated our position during the 2020 Presidential election at a time of heightened political and regulatory uncertainty.

We believe under its new CEO, Andrew Witty, UnitedHealth can not only preserve its market dominance and sustain industry-leading growth rates across most of its key segments but also enter new healthcare services markets. Witty is known as a mission-driven CEO who clearly articulates his view that providing high-quality, affordable health care services is a social good. He receives consistently high marks from former colleagues, and we believe that his leadership approach will ballast and even strengthen UNH’s already impressive management and employee ranks. The insurance and services businesses are synergistic and complementary, which entrenches United’s critical role in care financing, access, and management. This dynamic gives us confidence in the durability of United’s market leadership…” (Click here to see the full text)

9. Nasdaq, Inc. (NASDAQ:NDAQ)

Columbus Point Stake Value: $13,196,000

Percentage of Columbus Point’s 13F Portfolio: 6.28%

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 21

Artisan Partners mentioned Nasdaq, Inc. (NASDAQ:NDAQ) in its first-quarter 2021 investor letter. Here is what the fund said:

“We started new investment campaigns in Nasdaq. Nasdaq is the second-largest diversified global exchange and a technology provider for US and European capital markets. While the company is well-known for its US stock exchange, the current management team is transitioning Nasdaq away from this more mature and volatile business and toward faster-growing software and information service models. Most recently, the company’s acquisition of Verafin makes it a leader in software to help financial institutions detect financial crime (fraud, money laundering, etc.)—an increasingly critical regulatory challenge for customers. Over time, we think management can achieve its target of 70%-80% recurring revenues while increasing its revenue growth rate and margin profile.”
