In a move to further bolster its success in public and private health care investments, Viking Global Investors has hired Justin Lake, who was previously a managing director at JPMorgan.

As first reported by Bloomberg News, Justin Lake joined Viking Global Investors late last after a three-year stint at JPMorgan. As part of its strategy that performed strongly in 2014, Viking Global Investors capitalized on a rash of mergers and consolidations in the health care industry, including those involving Allergan Inc., Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc, and Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

According to the most recent rankings, Viking Global is currently the highest ranked fund on HedgeTracker’s Top Healthcare and Biotech Hedge Fund List.

It is expected that Justin Lake is primarily overseeing Viking Global’s investments in managed care and provider firms.
