Eos Preps Distressed Debt Fund

On Wall Street, disaster and opportunity are often one and the same. So as the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis drags down the credit market, the distressed-debt space is starting to get a little crowded.

New York-based alternative asset manager Eos Partners is joining the scrum, planning a distressed debt hedge fund for launch this fall. The firm hopes to raise between $750 million and $1 billion and will focus on European middle-market acquisitions, Financial News reports. Matt Meehan will manage the fund.

Eos manages some $2.5 billion in hedge and private equity funds.
