Emma Osborne, Head of Private Equity Fund Investments, ICG, commented:
“We are pleased with the performance of the portfolio in what is typically a quarter in which managers tend not to revalue unrealised investments significantly. All parts of the portfolio contributed to growth, and the portfolio remains cash generative with several full and partial realisations in the three months. We remain highly selective in redeploying capital and have a strong pipeline of new opportunities, and the portfolio is well positioned to continue to generate shareholder value.”
