The article focuses on the success of financial sponsor groups (FSG) in covering private equity funds in the U.S. These groups were involved in more than one-quarter of all merger and acquisition deals in the country. They contribute 15 to 30 percent of all investment banking fees. Private equity firms are the favorable clients of FSG because of the frequency these firms use investment-banking services. They make money on merger and acquisition advice, equity, and debt underwriting.
