Executive SummaryThe Vertical Group sticks closely to medical device investments, because that's the industry its partners know best. Although it has a narrow industry focus, its flexibility allows it to thrive in good times and bad. It runs an evergreen fund, of which general partners and its two special limited partners own 50%. And it has a great deal of investment flexibility as well; it can invest in all stages of a company, from seed stage to the aftermarket, where it can hold both long and short positions.
