Survey for NVCA on Volcker Rule – Please complete by April 28th

April 19, 2017

Last month, NVCA sent a letter to House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities, and Investment subcommittee Chairman Bill Huizenga (R-MI) and Ranking Member Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) outlining the negative impact the Volcker Rule has had on the venture ecosystem. Last week, NVCA sent proposals to Senate Committee of Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Chairman Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Ranking Member Sherrod Brown (D-OH), one of which requested for the exemption of venture capital from the Volcker Rule.

As we continue to engage with policymakers on this topic, we want to hear from you—VCs—on how this Rule has affected your firm specifically, via the survey below. We will use the data from this survey to quantify the impact of the Volcker Rule on investment into VC funds by geography and size to inform our messaging as we continue our efforts to exempt investment in venture capital from the Rule.

Please complete the short survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes, by 5pm PT on Friday, April 28. All responses will remain confidential.
