What and Why?
Venture Capital Funds are investment vehicles with the objective of investing into a portfolio of assets, mainly composed of companies offering high growth potential. These investments are generally made into a distinct sector of activity.
Such Venture Capital Funds seek private equity, to provide funds for start-ups and small to medium sized companies offering opportunities for growth.
The firms that receive venture capital investments have the capacity to deliver potentially attractive returns, for investors with different risk appetites, but with a long term, investment horizon.
Venture Capital Funds take a more active and overseeing role in the day to day management of the companies where the investments have been made. They provide consultancy and business guidance services to help ensure that the companies receiving the investments, achieve their full potential.
