Nordic Capital, a leading private equity investor with a resolute commitment to creating stronger, sustainable businesses, today announced its further investment in ArisGlobal, by acquiring an additional shareholding from the founding Abbhi family. The transaction follows Nordic Capital’s initial investment in ArisGlobal, a leading provider of innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for the life sciences industry in 2019 and subsequent years of significant growth for the Miami-based company. Drawing on its deep understanding of both the healthcare and technology sectors, Nordic Capital will continue to support ArisGlobal’s growth, with further investment into research and development, cognitive computing, global delivery and commercial operations.
ArisGlobal is pioneering innovations to elevate life sciences and benefit humankind.

Currently, more than 300 life sciences companies and government health authorities, including 30 of the top 50 global biopharmaceutical companies and the FDA, rely on ArisGlobal’s solutions to maintain regulatory compliance, manage and mitigate risk, and improve operational efficiency across the life sciences product lifecycle.
With this further commitment from Nordic Capital, ArisGlobal will prioritize innovation and automation within its Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs portfolios, with significant investments made across talent, technology, and customer experience. The funding will also fuel advancements to ArisGlobal’s market-leading capabilities in Drug Safety and Medical Affairs, where the Company has been recognized for being first in the industry to deliver cloud applications powered by cognitive computing.
“This is an exciting day in the history of ArisGlobal,” said Sankesh Abbhi, President and CEO of ArisGlobal. “Since we began our partnership with Nordic Capital in 2019, we have shared a common vision for the future of the life sciences industry and I am proud to say that we have made great strides working together to realize that vision.

I have never been more enthusiastic and optimistic about our future.”
Following the transaction, Sankesh Abbhi will, as President and CEO, remain a minority owner in ArisGlobal.
