PIP announced an unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per share as at 31 March 2021 of 3,274.4p, an increase of 119.5p (+3.8%) from the NAV per share as at 28 February 2021.

In the month to 31 March 2021, valuation gains* added +101.8p (+3.2%), investment income* added +2.9p (+0.1%), foreign exchange movements* were +18.9p (+0.6%), and expenses and taxes**** were -4.1p (-0.1%).

PIP's valuation policy for private equity funds is based on the latest valuations reported by the managers of the funds in which PIP has holdings. In the case of PIP's valuation as at 31 March 2021, 97% of reported valuations are dated 31 December 2020 or later.

At 31 March 2021, PIP's private equity assets stood at £1,639m, whilst net available cash balances^ were £183m. The Asset Linked Note^^ ("ALN") outstanding as at 31 March 2021 amounted to £51m. Undrawn commitments to investments stood at £531m as at 31 March 2021, calculated using exchange rates at that date. PIP's multi-currency revolving credit facilities comprise a US$269.8m facility and a €101.6m facility, which remained undrawn as at the month end. 


PIP has committed US$150m as a cornerstone investor to the Pantheon Secondaries Opportunities Fund ("PSOF"). PSOF seeks to partner with high quality private equity managers to acquire, as single transactions, their most attractive portfolio companies with the goal of jointly participating in such companies' next phase of growth. PIP's commitment to PSOF forms part of the Company's existing strategy to capitalise on the breadth of opportunities in this part of the secondaries market, which is undercapitalised and growing quickly.  PIP has agreed a fee basis with Pantheon for this investment which, in recognition of its cornerstone role, is lower than the standard fee scale applied to the rest of the Company's portfolio.


*Figures are stated net of movements associated with the ALN share of the reference portfolio.

**Ratio of net available cash, portfolio value and undrawn loan facility to outstanding commitments.

***Based on the change in the ordinary share price over the period.
