In the year 2015 a total of 42 hedge fund deals were absolved or declared. This was a total of 32 more than the previous year in 2014. The total volume of transactions was 27 percent greater than in 2014. This was due to the surge of transactions that took place in the last quarter of 2015. This however is not the only reason the transaction volume was significantly higher. The year 2016 will stand out as a record breaking year when looking at the M&A and hedge fund transactions. This was released in a press release that can be found on the PR.com website.
The press release is the 4th edition of its hedge fund and M&A overview which provides a look at the opportunities that have been available as well as all transaction activity. Madison Street Capital is a globally positioned investment banking firm providing a service to the financial services industry. http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=116516616
Even though hedge fund strategies showed an average performance the hedge fund industry assets have never looked this good. What institutional investors are doing is allocating to the alternative asset management division. This is to try and get bigger returns as liabilities are going up and the performance of hedge funds has been poor. Those hedge fund managers that operate on a smaller scale are finding it very difficult to attract the right amount of capital and are therefore functioning under threshold portfolio capacity standards. Hedge fund managers now have to deal with greater working costs despite the declining load on fees. All these factors are providing for an environment in which all hedge fund managers, despite the size of the assets they commandeer, are looking for other options that will still allow them to remain strategic.
