New VC Fund Performance Data: Short-Term Gains, Long-Term Losses

Cambridge Associates and the National Venture Capital Association today released new VC fund performance data, through the end of Q4 2009.

I haven’t had a chance to examine all of it yet, except to say that short-term performance improved, but 5-year and 10-year performance sagged. Not surprising on that last part, now that 10-year figures no longer include 1999 (and, as such, have moved into negative territory).

Plan to have a bit more on this later this morning. For now, here is the press release and the benchmark report.
