NEW YORK and DUBAI, October 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Eos and Greenstone Equity Partners have joined forces in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region to meet rising investor demand for global investment opportunities in alternative assets.
Greenstone Equity Partners, a Dubai-based and internationally experienced fund placement firm, will bring an Eos sponsored credit fund to the region's sovereign wealth funds, institutional investors and family offices.
Partnering with Eos, Greenstone Equity Partners is able to address its clients' demand for liquid alternative assets through a comprehensive investment platform built on the trust, experience, international knowledge and regional expertise Eos has gained in its 20-year investment history.
Eos is collaborating with Greenstone Equity Partners to expand its brand within the region and to develop new relationships with GCC-based investors.

"We understand the importance of trust and building long-term relationships within the region. We are delighted that Greenstone's group of world-class professionals will represent Eos in the GCC countries, building on the commitment they have made to the region over the past few years."
"We selected Eos for its exceptional ability to fulfill a wide range of client objectives and answer the increasingly loud call for global investment opportunities in liquid alternative assets," said Alex Gemici, CEO of Greenstone Equity Partners. "Eos' platform is both broad and versatile and underpinned by an organization with a reputation for quality and innovation."
Eos is a New York-based investment management firm with a strong history of active management of private equity, public equity and credit strategies. The managing partners, Steven Friedman and Brian Young, formerly of Odyssey Partners, founded Eos Partners in 1994 to apply their investment discipline to private equity and public markets investing.
Eos currently manages $1.5 billion across public equity, credit, private equity and managed account platforms. Regardless of vehicle, their research-driven investment process focuses on fundamentally strong companies with dedicated, capable management teams that Eos can partner with as public or private investors.
The Eos investment discipline is based on "private equity style" due diligence with a focus on global macroeconomic trends leading to superior risk adjusted returns over time. This "private equity style" investment philosophy gives them an edge managing their investors' assets across their funds, including those of some of the largest global pension funds, endowments and foundations in the United States and Europe.
