Marathon was founded by Bruce Richards and Louis Hanover in January 1998 as an alternative asset manager focused on global credit investment opportunities and has been expanding its platforms.

Hanover said in a statement that the expansion of the partnership was the “next step” in Marathon's evolution. “We have strengthened our partnership with key representatives from our core strategies and geographies,” he added.

Last year, Halpern told PERE the firm had just opened an office in Mumbai where it had become equity partner to Indian development companies. The firm also added an office in Turkey.
