A detailed description of PIP's valuation policy can be found on pages 100 and 101 of the 2019 Annual Report.

At 31 December 2019, PIP's private equity assets stood at £1,420m, whilst net available cash balances^ were £133m. The Asset Linked Note^^ ("ALN") outstanding as at 31 December 2019 amounted to £66m.
