Positive momentum continued across the whole of the ICG platform during the quarter. We saw significant client demand for our established and new strategies, as well as high levels of deployment and realisations. We continue to hire selectively to help drive future growth, for example in Real Estate, and funds in all asset classes are performing well. The outlook remains very positive, and we have a strong pipeline of attractive opportunities to execute.

Strategically we are well placed to continue to grow. We have a powerful local sourcing network, a focus on the mid-market across a wide range of geographies, and a diversified product offering of successful investment strategies that enable us to navigate dynamic market conditions. These qualities help underpin my expectation that the growing demand from our clients will continue, supported by enduring structural tailwinds.

Our successful execution of this opportunity is founded on our exceptional people, and I look forward to discussing this important aspect of our business in more detail as part of our shareholder seminar later today.”
