Absolutely none whatsoever - because it isn't involved! Status Quo maintained.
Is there not a major lump of uncertainty with APEO moving from abrdn to Patria?

Fees mean little. More important is total NAV return:

These are the Morningstar stats for 3yr & 5yr


# APEO..........14.0%.......14.9%

# HVPE..........19.7%.......16.9%

# NBPE..........13.5%.......12.8%

# PIN...........14.9%.......12.6%

HVPE the top performer; but allowing for the fact that they accrue more because they don't pay a dividend; APEO comes out top.

However you cut it, NBPE comes out better than PIN, but below the other two.


@skyship "Very little reason I can find as to why NBPE trades at such a premium to APEO, HVPE & PIN. The 26.1% discount seems rather low versus peers."

Direct investment(co-investment)dispenses with a tier of fees, & importantly provides much greater control over unfunded future commitments(cash flow). Have you compared NBPE's info in this respect, with APEO's, HVPE's & PIN's?

Very little reason I can find as to why NBPE trades at such a premium to APEO, HVPE & PIN. The 26.1% discount seems rather low versus peers.

The latter two not paying a dividend, but plenty of buybacks; and even a recent profitable Tender. The first, APEO, trades at a 39.4% discount and provides a 3.44% yield. APEO looks the best value at current prices IMO.

Yes, the email update was pleasing to read. Happy to have built up a nice decent holding over the last year.
NBPE Announces 1H 2024 Dividend -

William Maltby, Chairman, commented: “Today’s announced $22m dividend represents the 23rd consecutive dividend payment to be made to shareholders, taking total capital returned to shareholders via dividends to $338 million since 2013. Given the continued strong realisation activity in the portfolio, with $171 million of realisation proceeds received in 2023, the Board has also increased the Company’s existing allocation to buybacks.”

1H 2024 Dividend & Approach to Capital Allocation

~ 1H 2024 dividend payment of $0.47 per share to be paid on 29 February 2024
~ Annualised dividend yield on 30 November 2023 NAV of 3.4% and 4.5% on closing share price of £16.55 on 10 January 2024
~ Since 2013, NBPE’s average annualised dividend yield is 4.3% (based on the time of announcement)
~ Increase in the existing capital allocation to share buybacks; funds allocated and will remain allocated to buybacks
~ The Board intends to repay the Company’s 2024 ZDPs in October 2024

NBPE chosen by Kepler boss as his pick for the year. For balance, his suggestion at the start of last year was down 12%.

For 2024 I am switching asset class, but remaining in private markets, where I continue to think there is significant potential for skilled investors to add considerable alpha. My pick is NB Private Equity Partners (NBPE), which is a private equity trust which focusses solely on co-investment. This is a process where private equity managers invite third-party investors such as Neuberger Berman (NB) into selected deals. NBPE is an equity investor, and sits alongside these third-party managers, typically on a fee-free basis. NB have long experience in co-investing and selects only those investments which it think have a strong likelihood of success. The historic track record is strong, but returns have been relatively muted since the end of 2021 as a result of two headwinds which in our view are starting to roll off. Firstly, during 2021 several of NBPE’s successful investments chose to IPO as a means of starting the exit process. NBPE remained invested in a rump of these quoted investments, which were negatively affected by the downturn in equity markets during 2022. At the same time, rising interest rates led to a significant slowdown in realisation activity, from the boom years of 2020 and 2021.

NBPE is in a strong position to weather a deal slowdown, because of the deal-by-deal way in which it deploys capital. As such, the trust is very unlikely to find itself overextended because of commitments, and it can deploy capital opportunistically. The portfolio is increasingly mature, meaning that many of the investments may be at a stage where the sponsor (or private equity manager leading the deal) is looking to crystallise value gains through a transaction. The portfolio of mainly US-headquartered companies has delivered strong earnings growth over past years, a function I believe of the strong stock picking delivered by NB. There is no guarantee of course that this will continue, but I believe that private equity-backed companies are more resilient than those on quoted markets. Fundamentally, the private equity industry has developed such that the resources that managers can lean on to support investee companies’ management is huge. They can react quickly to changed circumstances, and gain market share when dynamics change. Certainly, private equity-backed companies do tend to be more enthusiastic users of borrowing. However, we believe that there is evidence that whilst higher rates are a headwind, they are not an insurmountable or life-threatening challenge, especially as interest rates look to be on a downward trend.

NBPE’s discount has narrowed from its widest levels but still sits at a discount to NAV of c. 25%. Of more interest, in our view, is the latent potential of its investments. If deal activity starts to normalise thanks to interest rates starting to fall from their peak, then we believe there is potential for some strong progress on the NAV front. We think it is likely that dividends will remain the primary route for returning capital to shareholders. Over the last ten years, NBPE has returned c. $375m of capital, of which the majority has been through dividends that add to $316m over the period. NBPE’s board has not ruled out share buybacks, and so if the share price doesn’t keep up with the NAV, it clearly has to be an interesting and accretive avenue for re-deploying capital from realisations. A potential tailwind to the investment case, given that the portfolio is denominated in US dollars (USD), is recent USD weakness, which has fallen from 1.21 to the pound at the start of October, to 1.27 at the time of writing.

Certainly, there are those (including FT journalists) who believe that private equity valuations are opaque and too high, and riding for a fall in the new era of higher interest rates. I’m not of the same view, believing that private equity managers, such as those that NB partners with for NBPE, create value in a repeatable process over cycles. NBPE is a great way to access this talent, hence why I am picking it as my trust for 2024.

except the share price movement is unperedictable- difficult tp know when to add
Decent rise in the last month from £14.62 to £16.98.
Got it paid before end of August on EQi too.
AJ Bell paid Thursday
ii credited my account on Thursday.
Not in my HL account either.
Anyone got their divi? Not yet appeared in my HL SIPP.
....and back up to where we were lol
Just got the email about the NAV update, results are behind benchmark on YTD. Maybe linked to that?
Planning on topping up after payday this month anyway.

Unusual to see it lose 3% in one day
Yeah, I nearly wrote that. But I'd like to load up more on NBPE and other PE trusts, and the bigger the discount/drop, the greater the margin of safety/confidence
Preferably one way and not the other...
rik shaw
Bah, I was so close to buying more at 1500 yesterday, now it's up again - wish this would go one way or the other!!
