Context

Coller Capital, founded in 1990, is one of the world’s leading investors in private equity’s secondary market – widely acknowledged as an innovator and a stand-out player at the end of complex secondaries.

The firm 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 investment team has a truly global reach.

Challenge

In a context of international growth, Coller Capital needed to find a way to easily collaborate and share data within the different offices and teams.

We needed a solution allowing our Finance, Investor Relations and Investment teams to use Microsoft Excel fully and to efficiently link Excel data into PowerPoint.

The UpSlide project

The Finance team investigated the first solution with implementation being led by Marketing and IT. The team quickly adopted UpSlide and are now relying on it to carry out repetitive admin tasks.

 

“We have very close relationships with UpSlide. The team was always there to answer our questions, especially during the early adoption phase. We really appreciate them being such proactive partners!”

Results

“We create a lot of presentations, which go through several drafts, so being able to  link the data and then  just update it rather  than start from scratch is such a time-saver.”

Productivity

“We have numerous slides that contain market data which is added to multiple presentations. UpSlide allows us to easily update and upload them all in the Library.

Sharing information within the firm has become so much easier!”

Collaboration

“The immediate reaction from the team was:“ This is great, why didn’t we have it before?”
