Morgan Stanley has named Graham Keniston-Cooper to lead its private equity business in Europe. Keniston-Cooper will be responsible for building a London-based team and establishing the firm’s European p.e. business for third-party investors. He will focus on direct investments, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts and fund investments in Europe, and will report to Stephen Trevor and Alan Jones, global co-heads of Morgan Stanley’s p.e. business.

Keniston-Cooper was most recently at Lazard European Private Equity Partners where he served as a managing partner responsible for setting up and managing Lazard’s pan-European p.e. business. Prior to joining Lazard, he was a partner and Director of Cinven for 11 years where he was involved in all aspects of p.e. activities and led transactions across a range of sectors and geographies with a particular focus on consumer related businesses.

“We are pleased that Graham will be leading the development of our private equity business in Europe,” said Owen Thomas, president of Morgan Stanley Investment Management. “As we continue to grow our private equity business, we are focused on assembling a team of top talent from both inside and outside Morgan Stanley who can utilize the full resources and capabilities of the Firm to create industry-leading private equity products for our clients.”
