In the wake of recessionary declines, the industry is expected to continue on a path to growth, but not without a few more ups and downs. Growth will be moderate as venture capitalists and principal traders proceed more cautiously than in previous years. A reduced appetite for risk, combined with lower levels of leveraging and increased financial health, will slow industry activity. Investors also face lower levels of borrowing, higher levels of regulation and increased capital gains taxes.
The Venture Capital and Principal Trading industry comprises establishments and individuals acting as principals in the buying or selling of financial contracts. Principals are investors who buy or sell for their own accounts, rather than on behalf of clients. It excludes investment bankers, securities dealers and commodity contracts dealers trading as principals.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
