Top China Venture Funds Beat Most US Funds for Performance - 21.4%
Investment returns of top-tier Chinese venture capital funds outdo most US venture funds. Surprised?
In a benchmark analysis of returns, seven China venture funds from prominent funds investing between 2010 and 2013 earned a return of 21.4 percent. That's higher than 19.3 for 141 US funds but not at the level of 34 percent returns of the top 25 US venture funds, according to a recent analysis done by a major Sino-US venture capital investor for my next book,
Tech Titans of China,
published by Hachette Book Group.
A separate study showed that Chinese funds generated 1.79 times returns, slightly higher than US at 1.70 and Western European funds at 1.75, analysis by eFront, a private equity software service, shows.
