HFM Global/Hedge Fund Intelligence are pleased to announce the initial nominations for the inaugural EuroHedge Emerging Fund Manager Awards, which will be announced and presented at an industry dinner to be held at the Plaisterers Hall in London on Thursday 9th November.
The awards aim to recognise excellence in risk-adjusted and absolute return performance among smaller and emerging manager European hedge funds across a variety of investment strategies, timeframes and asset sizes.
Nominations are based on funds’ annualised returns and Sharpe ratios since inception. The minimum asset size for inclusion is $10 million and the maximum asset size is $500 million – with the exception of the longer-term performance awards, where the maximum asset size is $250 million.
In order to qualify for nominations, all funds must have outperformed their relative median index during the relevant time period under review, and their performance data must be listed in the EuroHedge database.
The awards categories are divided into four groupings:
- Funds that have been going for up to three years (with inception dates of September 2014 or shorter). Minimum assets $10 million; maximum assets $500 million.
- 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.
- Funds that have been going for five years or more, with assets of up to $100 million.
- Funds that have been going for five years or more, with assets of $100-$250 million.
These initial nominations are based on performance to the end of July 2017. The final nominations for the awards will be based on performance to the end of August 2017 and we will be announcing further rounds of updated nominations in the weeks leading up to the event.
The EuroHedge Emerging Manager awards are designed to shine a spotlight on the performance of the many smaller and newer hedge funds in the European industry – complementing, but not conflicting with, the long-established annual EuroHedge Awards that have been held every January since 2001.
Nominations are judged according to the same tried-and-tested quantitative methodology that has always been used for the EuroHedge Awards, based on a combination of annualised returns and Sharpe ratios. As ever, the principle is to let the numbers do the talking.
The inaugural EuroHedge Emerging Fund Management Awards dinner will be an opportunity for nominated funds and their various counterparties and service providers to celebrate their success – highlighting the excellent results for investors that have been achieved by many smaller and newer hedge fund firms over the years.
