We recognise the need to communicate with all our stakeholders. Cinven complies with the UK's Guidelines for Disclosure and Transparency in Private Equity published by the Walker Working Group in 2007, and with comparable codes throughout Europe. We actively work with all of our portfolio companies to enable them to communicate effectively with their stakeholders.
Every year, Cinven publishes a review in the Annual Review section of this site.
Those of our UK portfolio companies that fall within the categories specified by the Walker Guidelines disclose additional information in their Annual Reviews as required. They also communicate in a timely and effective way with employees, particularly during times of significant change, such as acquisitions and disposals, as soon as confidentiality constraints make this possible.
Cinven provides additional information to the private equity industry's trade association, the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA), as required by the Walker Guidelines, to assist the BVCA to analyse the role and contribution of the private equity industry in the UK.
When reporting to our investors on the performance of our funds and the valuation of assets, Cinven calculates market values in accordance with the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines.
