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 userbase, 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 alternatives universes. The service provider categories span all the key areas of the broader hedge fund industry ecosystem.
All winners are invited to attend an exclusive ceremony and networking event on Wednesday 30th March, at the Reform Club, London. The results of the awards will also be covered in a Hedgeweek European Awards Special Report that is distributed globally.
Pre-selection data for the awards was provided by Bloomberg, based on annualised returns over the 12 months from September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021 by funds in the following categories:
The hedge fund manager award categories include UK and European-based single-manager and multi-manager hedge funds with a track record of more than 3 years and over $50 million (except the Smaller Hedge Fund Category, which can be up to $50m) in AuM.
The women-managed fund award category includes all hedge funds that have self-disclosed to Bloomberg as being managed by women, with a track record of more than 3 years. This category has no AuM minimum.
The liquid alternatives manager award categories include UK and European single-manager funds employing a hedge-fund-like strategy outside of the traditional hedge fund structure with a track record of more than 3 years and over $50 million in AuM.
The emerging manager award categories include UK and European-based single-manager hedge funds with a track record of less than 3 years. These categories have no AuM minimum.
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.
Nominations for all categories are based on annualised performance over a 12-month period from September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021. Nominations in various award categories are further split by size and strategy as specified in the award name.
