Nordic Hedge Award: Announcing the Winners

Stockhholm ( – The winners of the 2012 Nordic Hedge Award were presented their trophies during an evening event on April 24th in Stockholm. Winners were determined in a two step process. Out of the 130 funds in the defined universe the top five funds per category were shortlisted using a model co-developped by Nordic Business Media and a PhD student assigned to the project by Stockholm School of Economics. The model took five parameters into account: absolute performance in 2012, performance relative to the respective Nordic Hedge Index  sub index, Sharpe ratio, consitancy of returns and long term track record. Numbers were weighted and normalized to determine the nominated funds.

A professional Jury then added their score  individually on their discretion to create final results and ranking. The three best funds per category for 2012 are:
