A Madison Street Capital Report Shows 2015 Was A Record Year For Hedge Fund Mergers and Acquisitions

Hedge funds are not the most liked investment vehicle on Wall Street these days. It seems the government as well as political candidates have hedge funds in their sights. The issues that seem to be making hedge fund managers villains rather than heroes is the amount of money they make. It’s not unusual for some of the big hedge fund managers to make more than $1 billion a year.

Madison Street Capital, a Chicago-based investment firm, specializes is merger and acquisitions. The CEO of Madison Street Capital, Charles Botchway, recently released a report about 2015 hedge fund mergers and acquisitions, and that report was a good one. PR.com published that report and based on the results Botchway thinks 2016 should be another good year for Madison Street Capital.

There were 32 merger and acquisition transactions completed in 2014. The volume of the transactions in 2015 was 27 percent higher than in 2014. That means larger companies merged with each other even though several big mergers were put on hold because of government interference. http://madisonstreetcapital.org/

Botchway’s Madison Street Capital focuses on medium size mergers and acquisitions. The big mergers can be more trouble than Botchway likes to tackle because of the rules and regulations that put a strain on the companies that are trying to merge. Madison Street Capital likes to find like-minded companies that offer something to each other that will make the merger work. Madison Street Capital does all the work for the merging organizations, so the company has built a reputation for being a full-service merger and acquisition specialist.

Marsala has more than 16 years of experience in the merger and acquisition industry, and he is considered one of the top investment managers in the business. https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/madison-street-capital#/entity

But even though 2016 looks like it is going to be another great year for Madison Street Capital, there are challenges facing the industry. There is a global recession in the works, and nation around the world are feeling the impact of that recession. Some hedge fund managers are selling stocks in companies that will have a hard time dealing with economic issues, and they are buying gold to protect themselves. But Madison Street Capital’s Marsala thinks he will close several important M&A deals in 2016 that will protect those companies from a global recession. That’s not going to be easy, but Marsala is a master when it comes to putting profitable companies together.
