Commenting on Ethos Capital's results for the year ended 30 June 2017, Peter Hayward-Butt, Chief Executive Officer, said:
“The past year has been an exciting one for Ethos Capital and the Ethos franchise more broadly. NAV uplift has been pleasing and invested capital, including post year-end commitments, is showing meaningful traction. Likewise, the Board and I are encouraged by new Fund and investment opportunities being presented across all Ethos Funds.
By nature, private equity is a long-term investment, requiring long-term thinking and a patient strategy. Ethos Capital remains confident in its ability to generate sustainable, market-leading returns – throughout the cycle – for its investors.”
