VOTING CLOSED

Please note, voting has now closed.

The second edition of the Hedgeweek US Digital Assets Awards will recognize excellence among fund managers and service providers in the digital assets space

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 crypto and other digital asset strategies, while the service provider categories span all the key and evolving areas of service provision in the digital asset space.


All winners are invited to attend an exclusive ceremony and networking event on Thursday, March 2nd at Convene 101 Park Avenue. The results of the awards will also be covered in a Hedgeweek US Digital Assets Awards Special Report that is distributed globally.

Methodology

Pre-selection data for these awards is based on annualised returns over the 1 year interval from November 2021 through October 2022.


To be included for consideration in these awards, a fund/program must satisfy the following basic criteria. Qualifying funds will …

  • …be listed and active in the BarclayHedge database.
  • …have provided BarclayHedge with Net of All Fees Performance.
  • …have a minimum of 12 months of performance reported as of October 2022.
  • …have in excess of 49.99% of their book invested in digital assets.
  • …NOT have performance generated exclusively from a prop-trading operation.
  • …be headquartered, domiciled, or have operations and personnel in North-, Central- or South America.

Participating funds will be subdivided into one or more “groups” based on their attributes, including length of history, structure (Multi-Manager, Fund of Funds or Single Manager) and AUM-class.


There will be two cohorts based on the length of performance history available for a particular fund:

  • Funds in the “Veteran” group will have 36 months or more of track record as of October 2022.
  • Funds in the “Newcomer” group have less than 36 months of track record as of October 2022.

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.
