The Hedgeweek Awards for excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers have recognised the increased focus on transparency, consistency and depth of expertise in the new investment climate.

The awards, presented on 3 March by actress Cherie Lunghi at a lunch in Mayfair, were decided by the votes of Hedgeweek’s nearly 41,000 subscribers, who include individual and institutional investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers.
The 2011 Hedgeweek Awards reflect the industry’s recovery form its difficulties in 2008 and early 2009 as stability in performance has returned and capital inflows have helped assets under management to recover the record levels seen nearly three years ago.
