The Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards recognise the best hedge funds and funds of hedge funds in the US, Canada and Latin America.
The hedge fund investment process relies on more than just numbers and our judging process recognises this.
Hedge Funds Review has partnered with BarclayHedge to identify the best performing funds in the Americas.
BarclayHedge provides initial quantitative screening for funds in the performance categories.
Hedge funds that report to BarclayHedge are automatically considered in the one-year and long-term performance categories. All other funds are encouraged to complete the online entry form. Alternatively, contact Sol Waksman to provide performance information directly to BarclayHedge.
To qualify for the quantitative performance categories, funds must report three years of net returns and have assets under management of more than $100 million or $250 million for funds of hedge funds.
Hedge funds and funds of hedge funds are invited to enter the qualitative categories, which will recognise achievements in product development, innovation, client service and excellence in the industry by both groups and individuals.
Funds launched on or after March 1, 2012 and on or before March 31, 2013 are eligible to enter the best new hedge fund category. There is no minimum AUM requirement for this category.
Hegde fund management companies launched on or after March 1, 2010 and on or before March 31, 2013 are eligible to enter for the best emerging hedge fund manager category.
