Eaton Partners Adds Depth to Private Capital Advisory Team

Adrian Siew, Formerly of Credit Suisse, Joins as Managing Director to Co-Head GP Solutions Offering

NEW YORK, Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eaton Partners, one of the world’s largest placement agents and fund advisory firms and a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF), today announced the hiring of Adrian Siew as a Managing Director in its Private Capital Advisory (“PCA”) business. In this role, Mr. Siew will be responsible for co-heading the GP Solutions specialty alongside Dirk Jonske, who joined the firm last month, also as a Managing Director.

Prior to joining Eaton Partners, Mr. Siew was in Credit Suisse’s Private Fund Group, where he provided strategic advice to financial sponsors and private market investors on GP-led secondary transactions, sales of private fund interests, and bespoke liquidity solutions. Before joining Credit Suisse, Mr. Siew spent five years at Lazard Frères & Co., also specializing in secondary advisory assignments.

“Our clients are increasingly utilizing secondary solutions as an active portfolio management tool,” said Eric Deyle, Managing Director at Eaton Partners. “Bringing onboard someone of Adrian’s caliber significantly enhances our platform and adds additional expertise to our full-service, holistic offering to the financial sponsor community. We welcome Adrian to the team and look forward to his contributions.”

Last month, Eaton Partners announced its newly branded PCA business will be organized into four distinct specialties – GP Solutions, LP Solutions, Direct Equity, and GP Stakes – to provide financial sponsors and their investors with differentiated strategic advice and liquidity solutions, in combination with the broader Stifel Investment Banking platform.

“I am thrilled to join Eaton Partners, a true pioneer in the fund placement business,” commented Mr. Siew. “GP-led secondary transactions continue to be at the forefront of sponsors’ minds, highlighting the durability and attractiveness of this product. The PCA platform is uniquely positioned to advise on how to best access this evolving market, and I am excited to be part of the team.”

Eaton Partners, which provides leading fundraising, advisory, and capital solutions capabilities as part of the investment banking team at Stifel, offers investment managers direct access to Stifel’s broader banking services, including over 600 professionals across 24 offices.
