Related Topics

Eaton Partners, a placement agents and advisory firm for private fund sponsors, has formed a distinct team that will work with and raise capital for unique private credit strategies globally. 

Targeted strategies include asset-backed and direct corporate lending, distressed debt, real estate credit, and other specialty credit. 
The team will primarily focus on representing credit managers located in the US, Europe and Asia.
“Recent regulatory hurdles have led to a secular retrenchment from banks in the commercial lending arena, and as a result, we’ve seen that opportunities for private credit managers are greater than ever,” says Jeff Davis (pictured), partner at Eaton Partners. “In fact, in several industry surveys taken this year, a majority of institutional investors said they were under-allocated to private credit and expected to increase their target allocations over the next 12 months. Our global capital raising capabilities for credit-focused managers is exemplary, and our team will be focused on working with truly differentiated private credit fund managers to showcase their unique stories and risk-return profiles to institutional investors.”
In 2016, Eaton has participated or raised more than USD2.6 billion for five credit funds.
Since 1998, Eaton Partners has participated or raised more than USD16 billion for credit-focused funds globally, including many first-time funds. 
Eaton Partners has relationships with more than 4,000 institutional investors across the globe and specialises in raising capital across a range of alternative strategies, including private equity and private credit, as well as real assets, hedge funds, and real estate. 
The firm also assists general partners in secondary transactions, and in syndicating co-investment and direct deals from qualified institutional investors.
