Wealth managers flock to venture capital as interest rates remain low and more startups go public

U.S. venture-capital firms continued to bring in large cash hauls for new funds, as limited partners sought to gain positions in the next big technology giants.

Venture firms brought in $28.6 billion for the first half, up 9% from the first half of last year, and kept on pace to top the massive $56 billion raised in total last year, the highest annual amount since 2000, according to Dow Jones VentureSource, a data provider owned by WSJ Pro publisher Dow Jones & Co.
