Methodology

Nominations now closed

The Hedge Funds Review European Single Manager Awards recognise the best hedge funds in Europe.

The hedge fund investment process relies on more than just numbers, and our judging process recognises this.

Winners are selected based on a rigorous methodology that combines quantitative and qualitative analysis.

The process begins by running a quantitative screen over the funds entering each category, extracting raw performance figures as well as other important metrics.

Funds that meet the qualification criteria are then ranked on returns, Sharpe and Sortino ratios, and downside deviation. The funds with the best aggregate ranking will make the long list that goes before the panel of judges.

The judging panel considers the results of the quantitative analysis and selects a winner in each category. In selecting the winning fund, the judges take into account the quantitative analysis as well as their qualitative experience and expertise.

The qualitative awards are at the discretion of the judging panel.

Where judges may be conflicted in an award category, they stand aside from judging.

The judging panel is impartial and unbiased, and seeks to reward genuine performance and quality.
