UTIMCO & Performance of Texas Venture Capital and Private Equity Funds

Today I ran across the alternative investment performance figures for UTIMCO -- UTexas's investment manager. Most of the investments are PE and VC funds. It's not too surprising that private equity and venture capital investments will be NYC and Silicon Valley focused, but I still would have expected to see some other Texas firms on that list that I am pretty sure are open to new investments.

Here's a quick and dirty list of the Texas firms that UTIMCO invests in: Austin Ventures, ARCH Venture Partners, Escalate, Sandefer Capital, JatoTech, PTV Sciences (Pinto), SCF Partners, Texas Pacific Group, TGF Management, Essex Woodlands, Wingate Partners, Encap, Fortress (Dallas office), GSO ( bought by blackrock). I could have missed some, but that should be a majority.

If you aren't in the investment management business, you might want to research J-curves, capital commitments, etc., in order to correctly interpret the numbers presented.
