Benoît Durteste, CEO and CIO

ICG has continued to raise, deploy and realise AUM during this quarter, building on our long-term track record of delivering for our clients. The benefits of our breadth and diversification in sustaining business activity across economic cycles are evermore clear in our financial performance.

Notably our flagship direct lending strategy, Senior Debt Partners, attracted $1.8bn of fundraising from clients in these three months. It also continued to experience an attractive pipeline of investment opportunities in an environment where debt remains scarce, deploying over $1bn.

We have launched a number of new funds during the quarter and, while they may take some time to raise, the fact that we have brought them to market underlines our confidence in the long-term prospects of those strategies.

When I look back over our three decades of history, some of our best investment vintages have been forged during periods of dislocation. Today the breadth and scale of our platform, along with our ability to invest flexibly across the capital structure, mean that we are better positioned than ever to successfully navigate these conditions, to the long-term future benefit of our clients, portfolio companies and shareholders.
