STATSHOT

While it is often reported that investor views of European venture remain sceptical, a survey from secondaries specialist Coller Capital has revealed that half of limited partners in Europe believe European venture will be as attractive as North American venture within the next five years. However, while this vote of confidence will be welcomed by practitioners in the space, it appears that North American investors are less enthused – only 25 percent of limited partners from the other side of the Atlantic expressed the same degree of confidence in European venture's prospects.
