Private equity firm Coller Capital has had a long-standing commitment to supporting academic research into its industry, but the firm needed a vehicle to communicate academia’s insights – and the practical lessons of its research – to the fund managers and institutional investors who make up the private equity world.
We developed a biannual publication, Findings, to showcase the best of academic research in a practitioner-friendly way. We brought together representatives of both parties on a single editorial board, bridging the academic and practitioner communities in the private equity sector. The publication encapsulates the views of both parties on emerging trends and policy issues.
Since 2016, Coller Capital has published Findings with support from Bella Research Group, an advisory firm led by Dr Josh Lerner of Harvard Business School. It remains a powerful and relevant tool for the private equity firm to distribute among its key audiences. Selected content is syndicated to a number of international publications, extending its circulation to more than 500,000 worldwide.
