Morgan Stanley’s former head of mergers and acquisitions in India has returned to the U.S. firm after leaving about six months ago, according to people familiar with the matter.
S. Sundareswaran has rejoined as a Mumbai-based managing director following a short stint as a partner with Alta Capital, a property investment manager and adviser, the people said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. Sundareswaran will be heading Morgan Stanley’s M&A business in the country and will also be leading financial sponsors coverage, they said.
A representative for Morgan Stanley confirmed that Sundareswaran rejoined the firm, without elaborating on his role. A representative for Alta Capital declined to comment.
With Sundareswaran on board during his last stint, Morgan Stanley had worked on the listings of Brookfield India Real Estate Trust, Embassy Office Parks REIT and Mindspace Business Parks REIT, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The executive spent 13 years with Morgan Stanley in his earlier stint, joining from Kotak Mahindra Capital Co., according to his LinkedIn.
