  • In contrast to venture industry norms, U.S. SPVs outside the top markets of the Bay Area and New York City actually raise more capital.
  • SPVs put capital to work and make investor distributions fast.
  • SPVs rarely charge management fees, and when they do it’s 25% of the typical VC fee.

Assure Analytics is pleased to announce a very exciting and informative new report on private investing: The 2022 Assure Analytics State of the SPV report. Assure Analytics was launched in 2021 to make sense of millions of data points from thousands of Assure Special Purpose Vehicles to provide investors, deal organizers and founders increased transparency into the private market.

This report on the State of the SPV, surfaces data gathered from thousands of private transactions. Significant report insights include:

  • SPVs put capital to work and make investor distributions fast.
  • The time to 1st investment is 43 days, and the time to 1st distribution is 2.3 years, much faster than is typical in the private markets.
  • SPVs rarely charge management fees, and when they do it’s 20% of the typical VC fee.
  • U.S. SPVs outside of the top markets of the Bay Area and New York City actually raise more capital.
  • Currently, the median SPV size is $422,000, which reflects a near double size increase during the past six years.
  • 32% of SPVs use preferred stock agreements, but this is on the decline in recent years, with Common Stock and SAFEs gaining popularity.
