Bob Morton, Chairman of St Peter Port, said:

“A number of companies in the portfolio continue to make good progress towards achieving a liquidity event. However, the commodities markets remain at multi-year lows which has depressed the value of resources companies. We have therefore reduced the holding value for several of our investments as a result.

“We remain committed to achieving realisations at every available opportunity.”
