WIlliam Rucker

William Rucker, Chairman:

The results ICG is reporting are a testament to our long-term focus on building and broadening the ICG platform.

Successfully fundraising, growing AUM, and increasing profits from our fund management activities – all delivered against a challenging backdrop – underline the powerful economic characteristics that underpin ICG’s resilient business model today.

Looking ahead, we are well positioned to navigate an exciting future, with many opportunities likely to arise as the economic landscape continues to evolve.

I am delighted to have joined ICG as Chairman, and look forward to working with the management team, our shareholders and wider stakeholders in the coming years.

Benoît Durteste

Benoît Durteste, CEO and CIO:

ICG has performed strongly over the last twelve months on both a strategic and financial level.

We have sustained business momentum across fundraising and investing activities, and have continued to focus on delivering value for our clients and portfolio companies. Rising interest rates and a more uncertain economic outlook are particularly suited to our substantial structured equity and private debt offerings – an important strategic benefit of our scale and breadth, which enables us to operate successfully across market cycles.

Our fund management company has delivered year-on-year growth in fee-earning AUM, fee income and profits. At the same time, the balance sheet has performed in line with our expectations during a period of volatile market conditions.

We take a long-term view on investing for future growth, hiring selectively across the firm and investing balance sheet capital in seed assets for a number of strategies. As ICG continues to grow up and grow out, the strategic and economic benefits of our multiple levers of compounding growth will continue to become increasingly visible.
