The cause of Overstrom’s departure was not immediately available, though people familiar with the situation said the split was amicable. Maverick declined to comment and Overstrom did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Overstrom, who was based in the firm’s New York office, joined Maverick in 2002 and oversaw the firm's investments in financial services companies globally.
