LPs expect to turn more towards venture in 2011

I don’t see much positive news coming out of the LP community about attitudes towards venture so I was very pleased to see the chart below in a recent Preqin report.  LPs are the pension funds and insurance companies that provide most of the money to venture capital and private equity funds, and Preqin does research into their market.

The line to look at is the third one from the top.  It  shows that the percentage of LPs who say they are attracted to venture will almost double from 2010 to 2011.
