The annual Hedgeweek US Awards recognise excellence among fund managers and service providers in the US 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 Thursday, October 27th, at the University Club of New York.
The pre-selection data for the fund manager shortlisted was provided by Bloomberg. Candidates in all categories and asset size groupings were determined as follows:
The hedge fund manager award categories include US-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 US 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 US-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 500 fund managers and other key industry participants.
Nominations for all categories are based on annualised performance over a 12-month period from May 31, 2021 to May 31, 2022. Nominations in various award categories are further split by size and strategy as specified in the award name.
Managers will only be considered for selection if they report performance data to Bloomberg. To find out more about this process, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
