EuroHedge announces initial nominations

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – EuroHedge today announced the initial nominations for the 2015 EuroHedge Awards and we are pleased to see a good number of Nordic names listed (see below). Given the continued unpredictability of individual fund and overall strategy performance in what has been a challenging and at times volatile market and investment environment in 2015, it is possible that much may yet change before the year is fully played out.

As ever, the awards will be judged on an established quantitative methodology – based on a combination of Sharpe ratios and returns – to identify the best risk-adjusted performance across a range of strategies and asset classes, with the aim being to let the numbers do the talking in order to select the nominees and the eventual winners.

The EuroHedge Awards celebrate fund excellence in the European hedge fund industry. The awards themselves are regarded as the most prestigious and accurate in the industry, (well, we´d argue the Nordic Hedge Award is up there!) and the hedge fund community turns out in force to enjoy this stylish occasion. Each year, more than 750 hedge fund managers, investors, and other industry professionals will come together to celebrate the achievements of the best performing funds of the previous year. If you want to meet the European hedge fund industry, then this is the event to be at.
