Angel investments are a part of private equity investments and research shows that well diversified professionally managed angel investments provide similar if not superior returns to other forms of private investments. The returns of angel investors are more to do with the selection of companies rather than stock market timing or economic volatility.
Angels leverage the skills and networks of fellow members to make better investment decisions. They also support the investee companies using the collective expertise of members thereby improving both the prospects of the investees and their returns.
Angel investments provide one of the highest impacts in terms of generating employment apart from providing innovative goods and services to society.
