Analysis

Focus on mid-market and large companies

Portfolio becoming more geographically diverse

The Portfolio is focused on developed private equity markets: primarily continental Europe (37%), the UK (29%) and the US (29%), with minimal emerging markets exposure. In line with one of our strategic objectives, our weighting to the US has increased from 14% at the time of the move to ICG in 2016. We have a target to increase the US focus to 30% – 40% of the Portfolio and it is pleasing to see that a combination of performance and new investment has resulted in us reaching the threshold of this target in three years.

Portfolio bias towards sectors with defensive growth characteristics

The Portfolio is weighted towards sectors that primarily have non-cyclical growth drivers, such as healthcare and education (22%), business services (14%) and TMT (13%). The remainder of the Portfolio is broadly spread across the industrial (20%), consumer goods and services (14%), and leisure (8%) sectors. Even in sectors which appear cyclical, many of the underlying investments are focused on defensive niches.

Portfolio vintage remains balanced

The Portfolio’s maturity profile balances near-term realisation prospects with a strong pipeline of medium to longer-term growth. Investments completed in 2015 or earlier, which are more likely to generate gains from realisations in the shorter-term, represent 35% of the Portfolio. Against this, 65% of value is in investments made in 2016 or later, providing the Portfolio with medium to longer term growth potential as value created within these businesses translates into gains.
