Eaton Partners Hedge Fund Team Named “Best Third Party Marketing Firm” of the Year by Leading Hedge Fund Publication
-HFMWeek Recognizes the Firm’s Excellence in Ensuring Clients Achieve Their Fund Raising Goals –
NEW YORK; October 28, 2014 – Eaton Partners is pleased to announce it has been named “Third Party Marketing Firm” of the year by HFMWeek, a leading hedge fund and asset management trade publication. HFMWeek’s panel of judges recognized Eaton’s growth over the last 12 months, its strong project management and distribution capabilities, and solid recommendations from influential industry players and former clients.
In addition to raising the most capital in the firm’s history for hedge funds, Eaton recently hired four senior sales professionals to further build its distribution team and two professionals to the firm’s project management team. The additional hires were vital in expanding and supporting a number of new client projects.
Eaton has one of the largest project management teams of any placement agent globally. Once engaged, they are able to act as part of a client’s investor relations department. By developing a deep understanding of each client’s investment strategy, Eaton’s project management team is able to provide swift responses to prospective investors’ due diligence questions and can quickly facilitate any follow up requests coming out of investor meetings. The expedited response time helps keep prospective investors focused on the fund and serves to shorten the fund raising cycle.
Thomas Kreitler, partner in charge of hedge funds and public market strategies at Eaton Partners, said: “We’ve put significant resources into our project management and distribution teams and the HFMWeek award is a terrific validation of that effort. Our fund raising process starts with listening to clients and understanding their investment strategy and value-add before connecting them with key influential decision-makers from major investor groups and institutional investors.”
“With our experience of working with a number of high quality managers in a variety of hedge fund strategies, including sector focused equity long/short, event driven, and distressed debt, among others, we are able to effectively communicate even the most complex strategies with clarity and confidence to the institutional investor community. We are very appreciative of the recognition from HFMWeek.”
