Carefully selected and managed portfolios of personal angel investments can produce an average annual return of over 25%. Compare that to:
1% from bank accounts
3% from bonds
7% from stocks
10% from hedge funds
15% from top tier venture capital funds
This quantifies returns from angel investments as impressive, if not astounding.
Angel Investing by David S. Rose
Angel investing has exploded during the past decade, channeling over $20 billion annually into startup companies in the U.S. alone. But until now it has been a niche activity—a way for power-players and risk-lovers to place exciting, high-stakes bets on promising new ventures. Angel Investing: The Gust Guide to Making Money and Having Fun Investing in Startups is the first book of its kind to discuss the human and financial rewards of being an angel investor, the benefits of joining an angel group, and the crowdfunding revolution that is bringing early-stage investing to millions of new participants. Investors looking for a powerful new asset class will find Angel Investing a valuable and comprehensive resource.
