  27. 27. 27 Steven N. Kaplan What will the future hold? ■  Despite all the attention to start-ups / VC, commitments to stock market value not particularly high relative to historical means. ■  Will probably be higher this year, but nowhere near tech boom. –  Commitments to PE are at historically high levels. ■  Accordingly, still feel better about VC than about PE.
