Emma Osborne, Head of Private Equity Fund Investments, ICG, commented:


"The portfolio continues to perform well, and we are pleased with the progress made in a quarter in which managers tend not to revalue the unrealised investments significantly.  The portfolio remains highly cash generative as our managers continue to take advantage of the strong exit environment to sell portfolio companies. Against this, we are redeploying capital selectively into high quality defensive businesses and in special situations where we can achieve relative value. We have a strong pipeline of new opportunities and the portfolio is well positioned to continue to generate shareholder value."
