Coller loses senior executive in New York

Partner Jonathan Gutstein was one of the top executives in Coller Capital's New York office.

Jonathan Gutstein, partner with Coller Capital and a high-ranking executive in the New York office, has left the firm, Coller confirmed.

Very little information was available about Gutstein’s departure, with Coller only confirming his departure but not providing any further details. Gutstein left within the past few months, according to the firm.

Gutstein could not be reached for comment.

He joined Coller in 2004 after working as an executive director at Morgan Stanley and its private equity unit, Morgan Stanley Capital Partners, now called Metalmark Capital. Gutstein helped the bank’s private equity unit establish a London office and built its European operations.

Gutstein’s departure came shortly after the firm held a final close in July on its sixth fund, Coller International Partners VI, on $5.5 billion. In August the firm announced it had successfully fought off competition to acquire an £1.03 billion private equity portfolio from Lloyds Banking Group.
