ESG and responsibility at Coller Capital
Coller plays an important role in society that is anchored in responsibility - as a business, to our investors and to humanity.
We integrate ESG principals into all stages of our investment process, from initial screening of opportunities to post-investment management. These principles are key to delivering long-term fund performance for our investors. All recommendations to our Investment Committee require an ESG assessment that determines whether the investment is re-shaped or rejected.
Advocacy is an important pillar of our programme as a secondary investor. Coller Capital seeks to share and encourage ESG best practice, acting as an advisor to many GPs, LPs and industry bodies.
In 2015, Jeremy Coller founded the Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return (FAIRR) Initiative – the world’s fastest-growing ESG network. FAIRR raises awareness of the material ESG risks and opportunities in protein supply chains, helping investors to safeguard the long-term value of their portfolios and exercise influence as responsible stewards of capital.
Coller Capital’s aim today is what it has always been: to tailor all our transactions to the needs of individual sellers. Our large, multinational team – the world’s largest team dedicated to secondaries – is critical to that approach.
Every member of the Coller Capital team strives to be the very best at everything they do, so that together we deliver the very best for our investors.”
