Job opportunities for financial managers who work for firms that manage funds, trusts, and other financial vehicles will grow by 19 percent through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The venture capital industry has bounced back in recent years (although the activity level in the industry is roughly half of what it was at its 2000-era peak). In 2014, venture capital firms invested about $30 billion into 3,665 companies, and new commitments to VC funds in the United States increased to $30 billion, up significantly from $17.7 billion in 2013, according to the National Venture Capital Association. With so much investment money flowing, there is a strong need for risk managers to identify threats to the success of portfolio companies and ensure a strong return on investment for VC firms.
