Tel Aviv, Israel, November 7, 2016– Glilot Capital Partners is ranked one of the most successful funds in the world, in the years of 2010-2013. This is according to the “2016 Preqin Alternative Assets Performance Monitor report” that was recently published. The report is considered to be the most comprehensive review of the industry available today.

The ranking includes a large database for alternative assets fund performance, comprised of 8,660 + private capital funds and 14,300+ hedge funds. Of those, 80 are Israel-focused VC funds with performance data on the database which was used for the study.

Glilot Capital Partners, presenting 92.2% Net IRR, was ranked twice in the report in two categories: 3rd place out of the top ten performing Venture Capital Funds of vintage 2010-2013 and in 5th place out of the top ten Performing Private Equity Funds in 2010-2013. Glilot is the only Israel-based venture capital fund to make the list.

Other top ranked Israeli VCs in the report were Pontifax and JVP which were ranked as the most consistent top performing venture capital fund managers. Global VCs that are active in Israel and were also mentioned in this category are; Sequoia Capital, Caanan Partners and Battery Ventures with their US funds.
Since the 2008 crisis , a new generation of VCs has risen with a narrower scope and a new and innovative model that already shows results. Glilot serves as a proof of this fact with more examples as Lool Ventures, Inimity, StageOne and others.

Glilot Capital Partners has $125M under management across its funds. Since 2011, among the companies Glilot has invested in thus far, four of the first six companies Glilot has invested in thus far have been acquired by Microsoft, CA Technologies, Marketo and Intuit. “We are honored to be one of the top performing funds in the world. At Glilot we understand that in order to succeed, focus is essential.” says Arik Kleinstein & Kobi Samboursky, founders of Glilot. “A fund which invests in a company needs to nurture it to help it become a leading company We give our all to our companies and our next challenge is to repeat this performance”.
