The annual Hedgeweek European Awards recognise excellence among fund managers and service providers in Europe across a wide range of categories.

Voting for the awards is conducted via an online poll of the entire Hedgeweek readership, where participants are asked to make their choice among the shortlisted firms in each category.

The manager categories cover a wide spectrum of investment strategies and fund types– encompassing the Hedge Fund, Multi-Manager, Emerging Manager and Liquid Alternative universes – while the service provider categories span all the key areas of the broader hedge fund industry ecosystem.

All winners are invited to attend an exclusive virtual ceremony and networking event on Thursday 11 March 2021 at 17.00 GMT. The results of the awards will also be covered – along with profiles of the winners – in a Hedgeweek European Awards Special Report that is distributed globally.

The awards follow a clear and transparent methodology.

For the manager categories, the shortlists are based on data provided by Bloomberg – with the candidates being selected on the basis of annualised performance by funds in their respective categories over the 12-month period from 1 October 2019 to 30 September 2020. For the full methodology please see here.

Hedge funds who wish to be considered for future Hedgeweek awards should add their fund profile to Bloomberg’s Hedge Fund Database by contacting a member of Bloomberg’s Hedge Fund Team at

For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 100 fund managers and other key industry participants.

Voting for the eventual winners is then conducted via an extensive online poll of the Hedgeweek readership carried out over several weeks.
