Insight Report: Angel Investors

Venture Capital (VC) and Angel Investments (AI) are rapidly becoming an investment of choice for high net worth individuals (HNWIs), as the two investment types account for an ever-increasing percentage of HNW portfolios globally.

Economically developed countries such as the US, the UK, Israel, Germany and France account for most of the world’s VC/AI firms. However, the number of VC/AI firms in emerging markets is expected to increase significantly over the forecast period (2014−2018), as a result of declining opportunities in developed markets, and the rapid pace of economic growth in emerging markets.

Innovation in technology, newer technologies and the distribution of new technologies are expected to garner significant investment from angel investors and venture capitalists between 2014 and 2018.

Innovation is not expected to be limited to the information, communication and technology (ICT) industry. Significant interest is being shown by entrepreneurs and governments alike in developed markets in sustainable energy startups. As a result, increasing investment is expected in renewable energy sectors such as solar and wind power.
