Coller Capital, the leading player in private equity ‘secondaries’, acquires portfolios of positions in private equity funds and unquoted companies from their original owners – investing from as little as $1 million to $1 billion or more. Founded in 1990, the firm is headquartered in London, and has offices in New York and Hong Kong. Coller’s multinational investment team – the world’s largest dedicated to secondaries – has a truly global reach. In December 2015, the firm closed Coller International Partners VII, with capital commitments of $7.15 billion and backing from approximately 170 of the world’s leading institutional investors. Coller’s name is synonymous with the development of the secondaries market. In 1994, the firm launched Europe’s first secondaries fund, and in 1996 made the first direct secondaries investment. The firm closed the first global secondaries fund in 1998, and in 2001 made the first acquisition of a corporate venture portfolio.
