The Eurekahedge Global Hedge Fund Awards is the first of its kind industry wide initiative to recognise and award hedge fund managers across the globe.
Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges based on both quantitative data and qualitative knowledge of the funds listed in the Eurekahedge database.
Nominees for the Eurekahedge Global Hedge Fund Awards are selected through voting. All hedge funds listed with Eurekahedge, operating as at end-March 2019, and having reported their latest performance and AUM numbers are eligible for nomination.VIEW METHODOLOGY

When I was asked by Eurekahedge to be part of the Americas Awards judges panel I felt very honored and accepted straightaway, without realising how arduous this challenge would be! Most of the categories had tens of hedge funds to choose from, some even hundreds! And I had just a few hours to reward years of hard work and sacrifices that every manager and their teams had to go through. Fortunately I was not alone in this undertaking, and after a thorough analysis of numerous statistics and focusing mostly on the robustness of the track record generated, Craig, Bill, Ilario, Vasily and myself managed to reach a consensus to select what we believe are the most deserving funds. Congratulations to all the awardees!

In my everyday life the main focus lies on selecting outstanding funds which best fits to the portfolio. Awarding a prize to the best hedge fund of its group was an unprecedented experience and at the same time a pleasant challenge. Being part of the Eurekahedge Awards Judges panel consisting of highly competent investment professionals across the globe was a deep honour. In particular I greatly appreciated our constructive exchange of opinions and in depth discussions during the evaluation process as well as the meticulous preparation of the valuation framework performed by Eurekahedge.
