Hedge Funds vs. Banks

Hedge Funds Serving Corporations

hedge funds and banksOne long-term trend I've seen in the hedge fund industry is that hedge funds are now competing with banks within several dozen areas of business. Here is a short list of why some corporations are turning to hedge funds instead of Banks.
  • Some commercial banks may not have enough money to lend because of timing or relationships in place with the corporation
  • Some companies launching hostile takeovers need large amounts of cash quickly and hedge funds can sometimes provide the quickest solution at a competitive rate
  • A company may need to borrow money overnight or for several days to make payroll until more of their receivables come in
  • Some corporations use hedge funds to fund risky projects that wouldn’t fly with many banks
  • Lately corporations have turned to hedge funds or sovereign wealth groups in times of desperation, when they need large infusions of cash to stay afloat
