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.

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