Venture Capitalists Want Regulation Exemption

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Venture capitalists said on Wednesday they should be exempt from President Obama's proposed changes in financial regulation, arguing they were not part of the problem.

The National Venture Capital Association, the trade association of venture capitalists, said their industry is "relatively inconsequential" compared to other parts of the financial industry.

"We believe that the entrepreneurial risk associated with the venture capital industry is not relevant to the systemic risks which the Administration is hoping to mitigate with this reform," Jennifer Connell Dowling, vice president for federal policy, said in a written statement by the group.

The industry said it "does not utilize leverage on a significant scale nor does it trade stocks or derivatives in the financial markets. Investors in venture capital do not rely on their invested funds for short term liquidity."

The NVCA represents about 460 venture firms in the United States.

Not all VC are bad. I dealt with one bunch who share the same name as a Scottish city. Good bunch. Know their marbles . . . .

A lot of VCs invest their own money. It's their choice, their risk.

I wonder about those who run funds on behalf of other investors, though. But VC is always high risk, in the hope of high returns.

Wheres the news value in this? They should be exempt. Without VC companies like Apple, Intel or Silicon Valley wouldnt exist. They get burnt when something they back fails. Move on please.
