We are proud that the portfolio has grown to the GBP1 billion milestone. Growth was broad-based, underpinned by strong performance of our investments across the portfolio as well as by realisation activity. Realisations continue to be at a significant Uplift to Carrying Value. This is a testament to our focused investment strategy and the quality of the Portfolio we have actively constructed."
