Panel: LP Perspectives on Investing in Venture Capital Funds

How are Limited Partners (LPs) thinking about their investments in Venture Capital Funds? Will the shrinkage in the value of public equities mean that the LPs have to reduce venture capital investing to rebalance their allocations? What is the likelihood of LPs missing capital calls over the next year? Are many LPs considering selling off their portfolios to secondary buyers, and what are the valuations like in the secondary market? How do LPs feel these days about Venture Capital vs other alternative assets – Private Equity, Hedge Funds, Real Estate? What specific venture capital segments (investment strategies) are most appealing to LPs in the current economic environment?
