100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) is to honour Jane Buchan, chief executive officer of Pacific Alternative Asset Management Company (PAAMCO), with the 2014 North American Industry Leadership Award.

Buchan (pictured) will receive the award at the annual 100WHF New York Gala, to be held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City on 12 November 2014.
She will also be recognised as the award honoree at the inaugural 100WHF Cayman Gala at Tiki Beach on 3 May 2014.
100WHF presents its North American Industry Leadership Award annually to a woman whose professional talent, business ethic, and passion for investing help define and advance the alternatives industry's standards of excellence.
Past US awardees – prior to 100WHF’s North American expansion to the Cayman Islands – include Karen Cook, formerly Steinhardt Management Company; Dr Marna Whittington, formerly Allianz Global Investors Capital; Afsaneh Beschloss, The Rock Creek Group; Dorothy Collins Weaver, Collins Capital; Kathryn A Hall, Hall Capital Partners; Sonia Gardner, Avenue Capital; Jane Mendillo, Harvard Management Company; and Anne Dinning, DE Shaw Group.
Buchan is co-founder and chief executive officer of PAAMCO, a global investment management firm based in Irvine, California with offices in London and Singapore. Along with three co-founders, Buchan started the firm in 2000 and has grown it to USD9bn in asset under management, over USD6bn in assets under advisement and more than 130 employees globally. In addition to her responsibilities for overall business strategy and firm direction, Buchan remains actively involved in PAAMCO’s investment process as a member of the firm’s investment oversight committee.
Buchan has been named to 50 Women in Hedge Funds, published by The Hedge Fund Journal and Ernst & Young, in 2013, 2010 and 2009.
Buchan began her career at JP Morgan Investment Management in the capital markets group. She has also been an assistant professor of finance at the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
Mimi Drake, chair, 100WHF global board of directors and president, Permit Capital Advisors, says: “Jane Buchan is a highly respected member of the alternatives industry, and one who we at 100WHF hold in the highest regard as a Charter Angel – a significant contributor to the organisation in its earliest years. This Award recognises both her leadership as CEO of PAAMCO and her broader efforts to champion professional educational opportunities for women in the industry through her Board role at the CAIA Association and PAAMCO’s sponsorship of the 100WHF Scholarship Program. We are pleased to be able to recognise all of her accomplishments through this Award.”
