HedgeWeek was one of the sources that covered the report. The summary included a quote from the Senior Managing Director of Madison Street Capital. He states that the hedge fund industry, which is fragmented at the moment, will slowly become more consolidated and many more partnerships will be built that bring together product offering and distribution. He stated that alternative deal mechanisms are being developed that fit both the buyer and seller better. There are still traditional mergers and acquisitions, but there are also more PE stakes, seed or incubator deals, PE bolt-ons and revenue-share stakes.
