QED's Nigel Morris and Frank Rotman named to Forbes' 2021 Midas List


We’re delighted to announce that QED Investors co-founders Nigel Morris and Frank Rotman have been named to the 2021 Midas List, published annually by Forbes.

The Midas List is the definitive ranking of the Top 100 venture capital investors globally and is populated by investors of some of the world's biggest companies.

QED Investors is one of only 16 VCs with multiple partners named to the list and the only one of 12 American-based VCs not based on the west coast.

Nigel, QED’s Managing Partner, debuts at No. 86 on the list after leading QED’s investment in digital credit card company Nubank which is now valued at more than $25 billion.

One of 23 newcomers to the 2021 list, Nigel currently sits on Nubank’s board, as well as the boards of portfolio companies Red Ventures, AvidXchange, MediaMath, Prosper and Bitso.

Frank, a Founding Partner of QED, is ranked No. 69 and makes the Midas List for the fourth-consecutive year. He led QED’s investment in Credit Karma, which was acquired by Inuit in December for $7.1 billion.

Frank’s portfolio includes more than 20 investments, including SoFi, Roofstock, EasyKnock, Sundae, CommonStock, Current, Lendeavor and Signifyd.

To qualify, investors are ranked by their portfolio companies that have gone public or been acquired for at least $200 million over the past five years, or that have at least doubled their private valuation since initial investment to $400 million or more over the same period.
