   NB Private Equity Partners Publishes 2018 Annual Financial Report 
   15 April 2019 
   NB Private Equity Partners Limited ("NBPE" or the "Company"), a 
closed-end private equity investment company, today releases its 2018 
Annual Financial Report. Key highlights and commentary are below and the 
complete Annual Financial Report can be found on the Company's website 
   Talmai Morgan, Chairman, said, "The Company announced multiple 
initiatives during 2018 including enhancements to governance and board 
composition, a new target dividend policy and a sale of legacy fund 
interests. The Company also entered into a new buyback programme, which 
began in January 2019.  In addition, in March 2019, the Company also 
welcomed William Maltby and Wilken von Hodenberg as new non-executive 
directors. The directors and I believe the actions to enhance governance 
and board composition will be a strong positive for the Company over 
time. The portfolio continues to develop well and produced a total 
return Net Asset Value increase of 5.5% in 2018."
