Madison Street Capital had a total of 42 hedge fund deals that were closed or announce in the year of 2015 which was some handsome growth over the 32 that were closed in 2014. This is according to the Madison Street Capital’s hedge fund M&A overview. This means that overall the transactions within the companies were up 27% than in the year of 2014. Going into 2016, the Madison Street Capital funds are growing rapidly to be able to continue to experience similar growth well into the future. The deal environment for the hedge fund industry going into 2015 was a strong one, and the one going into 2016 will be even stronger than it was before which is something Madison Street Capital has full intent in capitalizing on.
The challenges in the hedge fund field still abound however as smaller hedge fund managers are having a challenging time incurring higher level investors to come into the equation which can leave some portfolios performing below expected averages, and this may continue to make the hedge fund industry consolidate into the future especially as products to bridge these gaps come out and other ways to invest become more common. However, it is worth noting that while some hedge funds came down a bit allocations to alternative asset management have risen quietly a bit and hopes of achieving higher returned rates on consumers other investments to make up for the lagging hedge funds that have generally performed rather poorly overall.
The Madison Street Capital reputation also goes past just providing companies with ways to invest including hedge funds but they also give to philanthropic causes. The home page of the Madison Street Capital is an ad for the concept that they are helping support United Way Disaster Relief Efforts and about how they are helping provide relief from tragedies that have happened in places across the US including states that are participating in the fund including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Madison’s efforts to support these charities help build entire communities that have great relationships with the company and allows the company to have a great relationship with their communities. As a financial firm, the Madison Street Capital also helps finance and fund new projects as that is the sector which we work in and it can help build infrastructure back up in the local communities after it is ruined by these disasters before people get back and live their lives the way they deserve to.
