Voting now underway for Hedgeweek US Awards 2020
Voting is now open for the Hedgeweek US Awards 2020, which will be announced and celebrated at an exclusive virtual ceremony and industry networking event to be held on Thursday 29 October.
The annual Hedgeweek US Awards – hosted by Hedgeweek, with fund manager data being provided in partnership with Bloomberg – recognise and honour excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers in the US.
The manager categories cover a wide spectrum of strategies – including Equity Long/Short, Credit, Macro, CTA, Event-Driven, Distressed Debt, Equity Market-Neutral & Quant, Multi-Strategy, Insurance-Linked Strategies, Structured Credit and Multi-Manager – while the service provider categories span all the key areas of the broader hedge fund industry ecosystem.
The awards follow a clear and transparent methodology. For the manager categories, the shortlists are based on data provided by Bloomberg – with the candidates being selected on the basis of annualised performance by North America-based hedge funds with at least USD100 million in assets under management over a 12-month period from 1 May 2019 to 30 April 2020.
Some 35 different single-manager and multi-manager hedge funds have been shortlisted across the 12 manager award categories this year, representing a broad and diverse cross-section of the US hedge fund manager universe.
For the service provider categories, the nominations are based on a widespread pre-poll survey of more than 100 managers and other key industry participants.
Voting for the eventual winners is being conducted over the next few weeks via an online poll of the extensive Hedgeweek readership, with participants invited to make their choices among the pre-selected firms in each category.
All winners are invited to attend an exclusive virtual ceremony and networking event on Thursday 29 October 2020. The results of the awards will also be covered – along with profiles of the winners – in a Hedgeweek US Awards Special Report that will be distributed globally.
Voted for by participants within the hedge fund industry itself, the awards represent an important mark of recognition and respect among peers, advisors, and counterparties – highlighting the achievements and successes of leaders and innovators in a dynamic and fast-changing industry.
