School gets millions to teach private equity

By Candice Krieger, February 18, 2009

Finance chief Jeremy Coller, of Coller Capital, has made a multi-million pound donation to the London Business School, which has renamed its private equity faculty the Coller Institute of Private Equity. Mr Coller, 50, pledged the cash in order to create the world’s leading institute for private equity education. “Private equity has been attacked over the past couple of years but in the past 20 it has helped start, build and transform companies,” said Mr Coller. “I strongly believe in private equity’s power to change companies and economies for the benefit of investors, customers, employees, and society as a whole.”
