The Guidelines Monitoring Group (the Group) has published an updated version of its guidelines on good practice reporting by private equity portfolio companies under the Walker Guidelines.

The Group was established to monitor conformity of the UK private equity industry with the Guidelines for Disclosure and Transparency in Private Equity. These guidelines resulted from an independent review of the adequacy of disclosure and transparency in reporting by private equity owned companies undertaken by Sir David Walker at the request of the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association. The Group aims to guide and assist the private equity industry in improving overall levels of disclosure and transparency in reporting.
