The future for the hedge funds
Madison Street Capital anticipates a general increase in the hedge fund deals in 2016 financial year. There was a 27% rise on the total of the hedge fund sales globally from 32 transactions in 2014 to 42 in 2015. Madison’ Senior Managing Director stated that the hedge fund industry assets had maintained their high performance despite stagnation and bad performance by most hedge fund strategies. The smaller hedge funds have the challenge of developing new capital, therefore, operating below their expectations.
Most institutional investors have also turned to the asset management that will enable them to match the rising liabilities in the market. Businesses have formulated different deal mechanisms that accommodate different buyers and sellers in the financial industry. Other alternative strategies used in the hedge fund industry include restructuring of the transactions as revenue stakes, PE stakes, and PE bolt on among others.
