Coller Capital

Coller Capital, founded in 1990, is one of the world's leading investors in private equity's $50bn+ secondary market. The firm is widely recognised within the private equity industry as an innovator and stand-out player at the complex end of ‘secondaries’.

Coller provides ‘liquidity solutions’ to private equity investors worldwide, acquiring interests in private equity funds, portfolios of private companies, and other private equity-related assets. With headquarters in London, and offices in New York and Hong Kong, Coller’s multinational team has a truly global reach.

Who can apply to be an Investment Analyst?

We welcome applications from final year undergraduates and recent graduates with a 2:1 and above (or equivalent) in any degree discipline, although a degree in a numerate subject (e.g. statistics, maths, economics or finance) would be an advantage. Experience as an intern in investment banks, private equity, or investment management companies will be viewed favourably.

You will be ambitious, as demonstrated by your academic record and extracurricular activities, and will have a genuine interest in the financial world. You will also be a team player with a strong work ethic, who is looking to work in a supportive and collaborative environment. You should have no more than one year of work experience.

Coller Capital is an equal opportunities employer. We recognise that diversity is key to our success as a business and we particularly welcome applications from candidates who have traditionally been under-represented in the financial services industry.

Overview

This is a rare opportunity to become involved in private equity at a graduate level. As a new Investment Analyst you will learn about how private equity works and about secondaries specifically. You will work right across our investments, which are wide ranging in terms of asset type, industry sector, and geography. Coller’s training and development will enable you to:

  1. Build financial models
  2. Develop your analytical skills
  3. Value portfolio companies
  4. Evaluate potential transactions, both qualitatively and quantitatively
  5. Support the structuring and execution of investments

You will become skilled in conducting desktop research and helping to prepare materials for Investment Committee meetings.

Our standards are exceptionally high and Investment Analysts are expected to demonstrate a concern for detail, accountability for the quality of outputs, and proactivity. For our part, we will provide training and a huge amount of support and feedback. Your communication skills and your ability to work well to tight deadlines will grow immensely as an Investment Analyst.

Proposition

The Investment Analyst role is a three-year programme. At the end of the third year you might be: offered an Associate role here at Coller Capital (if you have shown exceptional performance and demonstrable future potential); continue your education (by undertaking an MBA or further studies in finance, for example); use your new skills and experience to further your career elsewhere.

Coller Capital excels at developing its people; almost all our Partners were grown from within the firm. We will provide you with outstanding technical training and the tools to grow and advance your career both within and outside the company.
