SFI Trustee Katherine Collins considers herself a “consilient investor,” and consilience – evidence from unrelated sources converging to strong conclusions – is her defining passion. After a successful management career with Fidelity and with it, a key role in SFI’s Business Network, Collins sought a more holistic approach to finance. This led her to pursue theological studies at Harvard Divinity School, and eventually to start her own research and consulting firm, Honeybee Capital, which focuses on “integrated investing.” “What’s drawn me to SFI is not just their tolerance for multidisciplinary work, but their passion for it,” she says. “I’ve seen too many negative consequences of isolated specialization.” That specialization was a contributing factor in the 2008 financial crisis, and Collins credits SFI with giving her the perspective – and the ability to fight what she calls a “cultural bias toward false certainty” – to survive the challenge to her business. After supporting the Institute as an individual donor, she and Honeybee joined the SFI Business Network in 2013. In November 2013 Collins was elected to SFI’s Board of Trustees. “Everything that’s interesting in the world is at the messy part around the borders,” she says. “The more borders you can cross, the better off you’ll be. SFI is the source of so many amazing ideas, and it’s shockingly accessible.”
