According the Madison Street Capital Senior MD, Karl D’Cunha, 42 hedge fund deals were either announced or closed in 2015, up from 32 transactions that were closed in 2014.
The outlook for 2016 showed a remarkable rise in hedge fund industry assets in spite of downtrodden hedge fund performance that prevailed at the time. Institutional investors also decided to move to asset management sector in a strategy to rescue their dwindling returns and keep liabilities in check. The other factors pushing hedge fund managers to consider strategic alternatives include difficulties in accessing capital and higher operating cost coupled with downward pressure on fees. On the overall, the 2015 deal environment was strong and all indications were ripe that 2016 will follow suit with even stronger performance. Besides M&A transactions, there were several structured mechanisms shaping the deal making environment; these include Revenues Share Stakes, Incubator Deals, PE bolt-ons and PE Stakes. Mr. Cunha also sees a hedge fund future where consolidation will be the norm, especially where opportunistic partners want to bridge deficiencies in product distribution.
