GP ADVISORY, SECONDARIES & DIRECTS OVERVIEW
Eaton Partners has a long history working with general partners to design, structure and execute successful transactions providing both liquidity for limited partners as well as new capital for sponsors. As a fully integrated team into Eaton Partners’ broader businesses, the team actively engages with dedicated investors as well as more traditional LPs with an allocation to secondaries and directs.
GP FACILITATED TRANSACTIONS
Eaton Partners has executed successful transactions providing liquidity to limited partners in virtually every asset class and across many geographies attracting a broad mix of new limited partners including secondary funds, family offices, sovereign wealth funds as well as endowments, foundations and state pensions funds. As GP facilitated transaction volume continues to grow and become the preferred method for LP liquidity, the Eaton Partners’ team is uniquely positioned to execute these complex transactions as a result of their extensive backgrounds in principal investing.
Many traditional LP investors are increasing their allocation to direct investing and direct co-investing within the broad private alternatives asset class. To address this growing trend Eaton Partners works actively with companies and financial sponsors to raise direct investment capital across a variety of industry sectors. Transactions include minority and majority investments raising primary and/or secondary capital as well as fundless sponsor and 144A pre-IPO equity investments.
