The Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards are taking place on July 24, 2014 in New York.

Award nominations for the 2014 Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards open on April 28 and close on May 16.

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.
