“I help run a small family office and we were looking to broaden our exposure to venture capital, beyond the one-off deals we do. AVG’s Total Access Fund provided me with access to the asset class in a simple way: an index fund of venture capital. I was able to customize our investment size and horizon, and I receive regular updates on our investments through the AVG mobile app for investors.”

Why Invest in the AVG International Fund?

While the past 25 years have been dominated by US ventures, we are likely to see the rest of the world catch up over the next 25 years. The legal infrastructure, technical education base, and cultural norms have shifted significantly in large parts of the world, with innovation now being fostered in many countries. A prudent investor has international venture exposure appropriately allocated in their portfolio as another means of minimizing risk and maximizing returns. Our International Fund provides further hedging by offering diversity across sector, stage, and geography, investing in companies that are located or do most of their business outside the US.

How does the AVG International Fund assemble a great portfolio for me?

  • We use our AVG fund networks of over 100,000 graduates of top U.S. universities to access deals that simply are not available to most individuals.

  • Our full-time investment team professionals review dozens of deals each month, selecting only the most promising to bring to their Investment Committees.

  • We only invest in deals with a strong lead investor with sector expertise, combining their due diligence with our own, and then further vet for our international criteria.

 

“The Total Access Fund makes it easy for me to access the asset class broadly. I wanted to put about $1M into venture capital. I had been offered many opportunities to do so, but none of those proposals offered a broad, deep, and thoughtful approach to the asset class. Alumni Ventures Group and the Total Access Fund has done just that, and I’m very pleased to know that I’m adding this asset class in a smart way.”
