For VCs, it’s all about making a quick buck.
In addition to taking the VCs investment, the VC will also take a small amount of stock from the company to make the deal, which in turn will make it easier for them to make a quick profit on the investment.
For the past three years, venture capital firms have been selling their stock on the stock exchange, but the practice has now been banned due to concerns about insider trading.
Investment bankers from firms such as KKR, Goldman Sachs and McKinsey are now calling on regulators to crack down on the practice.
“Investment banks need to be very careful to keep their hands off of these sorts of things,” said Michael Lutz, an investment banker at KKR.
In 2015, KKR bought $1.3bn worth of stock in the company, including a stake in a mobile payments startup.
“I am not sure what the market is going to look like in 2019, but it is probably not going to be much different from what we saw in 2016,” said Mr Lutz.
“There’s no reason to think that VCs are going to make anything like the money they made last year,” he added.
The firm has also been investing in social media and gaming companies.
The firm is currently developing its own social network, according to its most recent quarterly report.
But Mr Luthts fears that the rise in the stock market will lead to increased insider trading, as investors look for ways to profit on deals.
“I think it’s going to get more complicated because there are so many different players,” he said.
“You could go to Facebook and Twitter and you could see that there are all kinds of ways to make money, but if you look at the way the stock markets are being managed right now, it doesn’t look very good.”
Mr Lutht said that he has seen investors taking advantage of the current situation to get a quick quick profit.
“They will try to get some quick return by doing deals that are already on the books and they are going after a small portion of the market,” he explained.
Investors are also using a number of other means to get around the ban on insider trading to make quick profits.
They are often using third parties to help them take a cut of the deal.
