Hedgeweek USA Awards 2011

Hedgeweek USA Awards 2011 - The Winners

The Hedgeweek USA Awards 2011 for excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers have honoured the US industry’s best performers and their ability to demonstrate consistency and depth of expertise against the backdrop of a more complex, but also potentially more rewarding, investment climate. 

The awards, presented at a lunch at New York’s Gansevoort Hotel on June 16, were decided by the votes of Hedgeweek’s nearly 20,000 US-based subscribers, who include institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers. 

The inaugural Hedgeweek USA Awards celebrate the industry’s recovery from its difficulties in 2008 and early 2009. As the awards ceremony’s keynote speaker, Sadis & Goldberg partner Ron S. Geffner, noted, performance has recovered and capital inflows have helped assets under management to regain and even surpass the record levels seen three years ago.
 
The industry’s rebound over the past two years also reflects the ability of managers and service providers to handle the burdens of a more intrusive regulatory environment and to accommodate new investor requirements in areas such as transparency and liquidity.
