“The Adveq Applied Research Series” will produce three to four research papers a year on private equity covering a variety of topics that are relevant to institutional investment in the asset class.
Francesca Cornelli, Professor of Finance and Academic Director for the Coller Institute, London Business Schoo,l said: “We believe this new partnership will lead to the generation of compelling applied research and findings that will be immediately usable for business”.
The first publication by the new partnership is expected later this year and will cover the changing trends of asset allocation to private equity.
The long-term direction of the research and partnership co-operation will be overseen by an advisory board that includes three London Business School faculty who are part of the Coller Institute and two managing directors of Adveq.
Sven Lidén, CEO, Adveq, said: “We believe that combining the academic capabilities of one of the world’s leading business schools with the global expertise of Adveq’s Private Equity practitioners will provide useful insight to both investors and investment professionals.”
