Hedgeweek USA Awards 2019 - The Winners

Hedgeweek 2019 USA Awards

For the eighth year running, Hedgeweek has recognised the achievements of the leading hedge fund managers and their services providers – as well the sector as a whole – at the annual Hedgeweek USA Awards.

The winners were presented with their awards in a ceremony at the Intercontinental in New York City on 26 September 2019.
This year, Hedgeweek partnered with BarclayHedge, a division of Backstop Solutions, to pre-select managers based on their performance over the previous 12 months. The winners were then decided via a rigorous reader-choice online poll carried out over ten weeks. The winners in all categories were those who attracted the most votes from Hedgeweek’s readers.
Overall, 4428 readers participated, of which 47 per cent were Investors; 33 per cent were Managers; and 20 per cent were Service Providers.
