The annual Hedgeweek Global and Hedgeweek USA Awards recognise excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers around the world.
Voting is now closed for the 4th edition of the USA Awards, which will be presented at a ceremony in New York at the end of May 2014.
Please click here for a full list of the winners of the 5th edition of the Global Awards, which were presented at an awards lunch in London on 28 February 2014.
Uniquely, our awards are based on a 'peer review system' whereby our readers - including institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers - are invited to elect a 'best in class' in a series of categories via an online survey. Firms are also welcome to nominate themselves in any relevant category.
In each category, the firms with the most votes at the end of the voting period are subject to a final review by Hedgeweek's Senior Editorial team.
All winners are then invited to collect their award at a high profile awards ceremony in either London (Global Awards) or New York (USA Awards).
The Awards ceremonies are covered, along with profiles of the winning companies, in Hedgeweek Awards Special Reports that are distributed to investors and intermediaries globally.
