Emma Osborne, ICG, commented:

"The portfolio has delivered its 10th consecutive year of double digit underlying growth, driven by continued strong profit growth and valuation uplifts on realisations.

Against the current backdrop of high valuations for new investments and continuing macro uncertainties we remain highly selective in redeploying cash generated by the portfolio. We have a strong pipeline of new opportunities and believe the portfolio is well positioned to continue to generate shareholder value."
