What does the new tax bill mean for VC funds?

I’m considering investing in a venture capital fund and I’m unclear about what the new tax bill means for the VC sector. The lower corporate tax rate seems like it should have a positive impact, but how big an impact will the carried-interest overhaul have on VC operators? Are certain types of venture funds potentially vulnerable, given the longer holding requirements for carried interest? Is this something a well-managed VC fund can handle to its advantage?

    One of the people I work with is the Head of the Tax Committee of the Real Estate Roundtable. He advised me that Treasury has indicated that it will issue further guidance about carried interest within the next several weeks. If you can reach out to me directly with your contact information, we will assist you once the guidance has been issued.
