Our investor clients are typically high net worth individuals, smaller institutions or family trusts seeking exposure to the professional services sector. Some investor clients take an active role in the businesses in which they invest, others are more passive according to their requirements and interests.
The global professional services market is valued at over US$1.8 trillion dollars and is growing more strongly than the broader economy. The Asia Region is one of the fastest growing regions in the world today.
Eaton Capital Partners is singularly focused on professional services firms.
This is an attractive market for investors because professional services firms are increasingly open to investment and consolidation as the ‘babyboomer’ generation, the most prominent owners of this sector, seek solutions to their retirement and succession issues. This provides attractive entry opportunities for investors.
This is also an attractive market for investors because the professional services industry is growing and consolidating globally providing many exit opportunities for investors. As much larger players seek to consolidate their markets, follow their clients internationally or seek additional intellectual property to supplement their offerings and channels, many smaller firms are an attractive merger/acquisition option.
