Hedgeweek USA Awards 2015 – The Winners

The Hedgeweek USA Awards 2015, presented 10 September in NYC, brought together the leading names in the US hedge funds industry to celebrate the achievements of the best performing managers and service providers.

While the markets continue to pose challenges for both managers and investors, the industry is reaping the benefits of responding positively to growing regulatory demands while focusing on generating non-correlated results for investors.

The awards were determined by the votes of Hedgeweek's subscribers, who include institutional investors, wealth managers, fund managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians, law firms, custodians and advisers.
