- Edison has issued a review on HarbourVest Global Private Equity.

It says: "HarbourVest Global Private Equity (HVPE) gives investors access to selected private equity (PE) managers globally and a highly diversified portfolio of over 7,000 underlying companies.

"HVPE will celebrate its 10th anniversary in December 2017 and since inception its shares have outperformed global listed and unlisted equities, represented by the FTSE All-World and LPX 50 indices, by 11% and 36%, respectively.

"This solid performance is consistent with the mandate to generate long-term capital growth above global equities, and has been achieved with relatively low volatility due to HVPE's high level of diversification.

"HVPE shares are trading at a 14.7% discount to NAV, a notable improvement on the three-year average of 20.0% but still slightly wider than the peer group average of 13.1%. HVPE has delivered class-leading NAV total returns since inception and over five years, with above-average returns over three years.

"This suggests scope for the discount to narrow relative to the peer group."

At 8:10am: [LON:HVPE] Harbourvest Global Private Equity share price was -4p at 1265p
