Eaton Partners Expands Global Footprint With Chicago Office

Mar 29 2016 | 7:58pm ET

Placement agent Eaton Partners has opened a new office in Chicago to help develop Eaton Partners' global investor network and placement capabilities, the company has announced.

The new office is Eaton’s seventh global office and joins locations in Hong Kong, Houston, London, Rowayton, San Diego, and Shanghai. Christopher Maduri, a director at the company and currently manager of the company's San Diego location, will lead the new location.

Maduri focuses on Eaton Partners' private equity, real estate, credit and real asset fund distribution and is a Chicago native. Prior to joining Eaton in 2011, Mr. Maduri worked for Triton Pacific Capital, a private equity firm, and Heitman, a real estate investment management firm based in Chicago, among others.

“We see tremendous value in having an on-the-ground presence in Chicago as it allows us to further strengthen client and institutional investor relationships in the region," said Peter Martenson, partner and head of distribution at Eaton Partners. 

The new office will be located within Stifel Financial Corporation's Chicago office space located at 70 W Madison Street. Stifel’s acquisition of Eaton closed in January. 

"The new office location and space in Chicago is a prime example of how our affiliation with Stifel allows us to elevate our global platform and expand our local footprint," added Eaton Partners CEO Charlie Eaton. 

Founded in 1983, Eaton Partners is one of the largest and most experienced fund placement firms in the world. When the acquisition was announced, Stifel noted Eaton’s deep ties to the alternative asset and family office industries, citing Eaton’s relationships with over 4,000 of the largest active institutional investors and the more than $68 billion it has raised for 90 highly differentiated funds.
