Coller loses second partner in two weeks with Boothby departure

Louise Boothby's exit comes after that of Amyn Hassanally, a New York-based partner who is set to join Pantheon to lead its secondaries team globally.

Coller Capital, the sixth-biggest firm in secondaries headquartered in western Europe according to the SI 50, has lost a second partner in the space of two weeks as it prepares to launch its next flagship vehicle.

Louise Boothby, a 12-year veteran of the firm, is leaving to join Glendower Capital, according to three sources familiar with the matter. She will join the firm as a partner and will do so after a period of gardening leave, according to a letter sent to investors on Monday.

Boothby was promoted to partner in 2018 and was responsible for deal origination and execution. She started with the firm in 2010, joining from cross-border corporate finance advisory firm DC Advisory Partners where she was an associate. Before that, she spent three years as an associate in the securities and principal finance team at Dresdner Kleinwort, according to her LinkedIn profile.

She will bring the number of partners/managing partners at Glendower to nine, according to Glendower’s website.

Her departure comes two weeks after that of partner Amyn Hassanally, who left to join Pantheon as partner and global head of private equity secondaries. Hassanally will join in the New York office, reporting to Jeff Miller, global head of private equity.

Coller is set to return to market next quarter with its ninth secondaries fund and will seek between $10 billion and $12 billion for Coller International Partners IX, Secondaries Investor reported last month.

Separate spokespeople for Coller and Glendower declined to comment.
