- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – The winners of the 2015 Nordic Hedge Award were presented their trophies during an evening event on April 27th in Stockholm. Winners were determined in a two step process. Out of the 152 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 several parameters into account, all in absolute terms as well as relative to the respective Nordic Hedge Index sub-index, short and long term.  Numbers were weighted and normalized to determine the nominated funds.

A Jury composed of industry professionals then added their score  individually on their discretion to create final results and ranking. The three best funds per category for 2015 are:
