HVPE provides a complete private equity solution for public investors by managing the portfolio through four phases of the private equity cycle to create value: Commitments, Investment, Growth, and Realisation (Mature).
HVPE commits capital to newly-formed HarbourVest funds during their fundraising process and co-invests alongside HarbourVest funds in certain co-investments. The HarbourVest funds to which HVPE commits then make primary fund commitments, secondary investments, and direct co-investments across geographies and venture, buyout, and debt strategies. This forward-looking strategy enables HVPE to be fully invested throughout the market cycle.
As the newer and developing HarbourVest funds in the HVPE portfolio commit to new investments, HVPE invests capital in the HarbourVest funds to build the portfolio. Based on the scope of the HarbourVest fund investments, the HVPE portfolio is highly diversified by stage, phase, geography, and strategy.
HVPE’s HarbourVest funds create value in their portfolios as the investments develop over time. HVPE’s NAV growth is driven by changing valuations for privately-held and publicly-traded investments, as well as liquidity events within the portfolio (including M&A transactions, IPOs, and recapitalisations).
As HVPE’s maturing HarbourVest fund investments achieve liquidity and create proceeds, the HarbourVest funds distribute cash realisations to HVPE. These realisations can then be used to fund the new HarbourVest fund commitments and investments.

Daily Telegraph (June 2017): “Private equity investment trusts look for fast-growing firms in their early stages before their shares are listed on the stock market. These trust were hit heavily in the financial crisis with many seeing their valuations plummet. This scared many investors off, but gradually the sector has picked up. Discounts on these trusts…have been narrowing in recent months and some analysts expect them to narrow further.”
CITY AM (August 2017)
“HVPE could see its share price rocket as it outperforms”
Telegraph (August 2017)
“Questor: buy this private equity trust for its huge diversification and superior returns”
Shares Magazine (June 2017)
“The private equity sector is awash with cash as funds offload holdings in investee companies and investors enthusiastically put up new money in the hope of getting exposure to the next big thing.”
Jefferies (May 2017)
“FY17 represented a more straightforward year for HVPE after the shareholder enfranchisement, LSE listing and step-up in commitments delivered in the previous year. While the NAV made good progress during the year, there is increasing evidence the former of these actions have allowed HVPE to fully participate in the recent re-rating of the LPE sector.”
Winterfloods (May 2017)
“HVPE has come a long way since its Euronext listing almost ten years ago. From being on the periphery of the listed private equity sector it is now a mainstay, offering size, increasing liquidity and highly diversified private equity exposure.”
