In partnership with Campden Wealth, SVB Financial Group presents a detailed study on family offices’ investment levels, performance, expectations, barriers toward venture investments, and their expectations for how the market will evolve amid COVID-19.
In the last decade, family offices have become more prominent and sophisticated venture capital investors. In a first of its kind, Family Offices Investing in Venture Capital 2020 summarises information provided by a total of 118 representatives of ultra-high net worth families around the world with experience in venture investing.
It explores family offices’ motivations for investing in venture, their investment strategies and performance (for both fund and direct investments), how they source and select deals, where they see opportunities, the barriers they face, their response to COVID-19, and more.
It will be of interest to families already with experience in venture, including in their benchmarking exercises; and with such families distilling their experience into simple recommendations, it will be most valuable to families just starting out in the space, too. Venture funds and startups looking to raise capital from family offices will also want to have a read.
