Investors' Investment Criteria HBR



Investing in Startups has Increased Significantly Over Recent Years

RockThePost’s 2013 Investor Trends Survey reveals interesting insights into the changing investment landscape and investment
attitudes among private investors today compared to 10 years ago. Upcoming regulatory changes with the JOBS Act will further
shape the investment world, allowing investors to invest in private companies for the first time in 80 years regardless of income
or net worth. The Investor Trends Survey also identifies some key characteristics of experienced angel investors – those who
have experience investing in startups – compared to non-angel or novice angel investors.
This special report contains a selection of the insights from RockThePost’s 2013 Investor Trends Survey, including:
Investor portfolios consist of 15% more alternative investments now than 10 years ago
Experienced angel investors have a lower percentage of mutual funds in their portfolios than novice and non-angel investors
• Investors are relying less on intermediaries to carry out their investments and more on direct investing methods
• The availability of investment tools, such as online trading platforms, and investors’ experience with direct investing are the
main reasons they are encouraged to manage their portfolios.
