Vector Capital spun out of Ziff Brothers Investments, a family investment firm, in 1997. Today, we manage over $2 billion in equity capital from a variety of investors including university endowments, foundations, financial institutions, and wealthy families. Our investor base includes a number of technology industry luminaries and represents a source of stable, long-term capital for Vector and a source of substantial strategic and commercial benefits to our portfolio companies.
We have built a successful track record of taking public companies private, buying founder-owned companies, recapitalizing broken balance sheets and spinning out non-core businesses from corporations. We have also made numerous investments in public companies.
Some of our notable investments include Corel, LANDesk, Register.com, SafeNet, Technicolor, Teletrac, WatchGuard and WinZip.
New investments are being made by Vector Capital IV, a $1.2 billion fund raised in 2007.
