Alternative investments industry veteran Deborah Bernstein has lost her bout with breast cancer.
Bernstein, a partner at Aquiline Capital Partners, died at her New York City home on Friday. She was 41.
Bernstein joined Aquiline in 2008, after eight years at Pequot Capital Management's venture-capital unit, Pequot Ventures. She also formerly worked at Thomas Weisel Capital Partners and Goldman Sachs.
"She made a lasting impact on the firm, including building our financial technology group and developing our talented team," Aquiline said. "We will miss Deborah and her indomitable spirit."
"Deborah was a shining star who passed far before her time," Bernstein's parents and widower, David Miller, wrote in an online obituary.
In addition to her husband and parents, Caroline Kresky and Michael Bernstein, Bernstein is survived by a five-month-old son, Asher.
