Naveen Kalluri, Financial Deals Analyst at GloblaData commented, "The drop in investment volumes and increase in investment values suggests that these investors are placing bigger bets on fewer companies that are maturing”.

Of the top 10 global venture capital investors analyzed by GlobalData, eight companies increased their proportionate investment value, with all but one of these companies reducing the number of investments made, indicating a more selective approach over the year.

Matrix Partners actually increased the number of investments it made during 2017.

Kalluri, added, ‘‘This reflects the company's focus on China, a country that is experiencing significant venture funding activity at this time."
