In the last decade, family offices have become more prominent and sophisticated venture capital investors. The Family Offices Investing in Venture Capital series summarises information provided by 139 representatives of ultra-high net worth families around the world with experience in venture investing.
Performance & Portfolio Deep Dive, part two in a four-part series, details family offices’ returns across a range of venture assets, including funds, direct investments, co-investments, secondaries, and debt – segmented by region and assets under management. The report shows how family offices diversify across sectors, stages, and geographies, and how they mitigate vintage year risk. It also documents family offices’ predictions about investment risk and reveals their plans for the future – including expected investments, interest in types of fund / General Partner, and interest in ESG / Impact venture investment.
