Voting now open for Hedgeweek Americas Awards 2021
Voting is now underway for the Hedgeweek Americas Awards 2021, which will be announced and celebrated at an exclusive awards presentation ceremony and industry networking event to be held on Thursday, 21 October at The University Club of New York.
The Hedgeweek Americas 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 Americas.
The hedge fund categories cover a wide range of investment strategies – including Equity, Credit, Macro, CTA, Event-Driven, Specialist Sector, Relative Value, 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.
This year the hedge fund manager award spectrum has been further expanded to include several additional categories – including Women-Managed funds, Emerging Manager funds, Liquid Alternative funds, Canadian funds, and Latin American funds.
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 Americas-based hedge funds in their respective categories over a 12-month period from 1 June, 2020 to 31 May, 2021.
More than 80 different single-manager and multi-manager hedge fund firms have been shortlisted across the 29 fund manager award categories this year, representing a broad and diverse cross-section of the hedge fund manager universe across the US, as well as in Canada and Latin America.
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 several 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 awards ceremony and networking event on Thursday 21 October 2021 at The University Club of New York at 17.00 EST. The results of the awards will also be covered – along with winners’ profiles – in a Hedgeweek Americas 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, investors, advisors, and counterparties – highlighting the achievements and successes of the leaders and top performers in an extraordinary and very challenging year.
