In what has been a year of extreme turmoil and unprecedented challenges, the team at Hedgeweek is very pleased to announce the winners of the Hedgeweek US Awards 2020, compiled in conjunction with Bloomberg.

The winners represent the best of the best in the US hedge fund industry, from fund managers to service providers, covering all the various parts of the hedge fund ecosystem. 

Our partners in the awards, Bloomberg, provided the performance data on which the nominations for the top-performing hedge fund managers were based across a range of asset classes and fund strategies.

The manager nominee shortlists, along with those for the service provider categories, were then voted on by the industry. This means that winning a Hedgeweek award constitutes a vote of recognition from your peers and a significant mark of achievement, particularly so in this extraordinary year.

All the winners are invited to a virtual awards networking ceremony that will include a welcome from Hedgeweek editor-in-chief James Williams, and a ‘fireside chat’ Q&A interview with Bryan Corbett, president and chief executive officer of global hedge fund industry trade association Managed Funds Association (MFA).
