Madison Street Capital reports that 2016 could be a record year for hedge fund M&As and investment banking as a whole. To date, hedge fund assets are reaching record-breaking levels despite the mediocre number of transactions that occurred in 2014 and 2015. Madison reported that a total of 42 hedge fund transactions occurred in 2015 and only 32 transactions occurred in 2014. Despite the low totals, Madison still projects a record-breaking year.
The alternative asset sector is seeing increasing cash inflows from institutional investors. The hope is to match the continued rise in liabilities with an equal disbursement of returns. However, smaller hedge fund managers are taking a big hit in their pursuit of new capital as investors seek alternative assets. The good news for smaller hedge funds is they may see a return of new capital if the alternative investment sector starts to tank in 2016.
