We are delighted to announce the winners of the inaugural EuroHedge Emerging Fund Management Awards, which were presented at an industry dinner held at the Plaisterers Hall in London on Thursday 9th November.

The awards recognise excellence in risk-adjusted and absolute return performance among smaller and emerging manager hedge funds across a variety of investment strategies, timeframes and asset sizes.

Some 250 professionals from across the industry – representing managers, investors, advisers and service providers – attended the dinner, at which 22 awards were presented.

  • 2. Funds that have been going for 3-5 years (with inception dates between September 2012 and August 2014). Minimum assets $10 million; maximum assets $500 million.
  • 3. Funds that have been going for five years or more, with assets of up to $100 million.
