A senior CVC investment professional makes how much?

We’ve partnered with JThelander Consulting to uncover compensation data for senior investment professionals at CVC firms, along with how those figures differ for men and women.

The impact of corporate venture capital investing isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

In the US this year, capital raised in rounds with CVC involvement has already reached a decade high of $41.2 billion through 3Q, according to PitchBook data, easily surpassing 2016’s old record of $37 billion. Over the past four years, aggregate deal value in rounds with CVC participation has surpassed $150 billion. (SoftBank and its Vision Fund, of course, have played a large part in that of late.)

So, how are the CVC investors compensated? And how does that differ between men and women?

We’ve partnered with J.Thelander Consulting, who provides compensation data for private companies and investment firms, to uncover those figures for senior investment professionals at CVC firms. All data in the featured chart is from the Thelander-PitchBook 2018 Investment Firm Compensation Survey.
