Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – The Financial Times Online published an article in its online edition looking at the top-ranked European hedge funds based on their annualized performance over three years, and five years, respectively. The data drawn by the FT is derived by the Prequin database, looking at hedge funds in excess of 100 million Dollars or more under management.
The list of top ten funds for the 36-month window is led by Specialized Russian Growth Fund (Spring), Montreux Healthcare Fund (Montreux Capital Management) and, ranked third, Kairos Pegasus (Kairos Investment Management) and contains no Nordic names.
The top ten over a 60-month period, however, lists two names very familiar to those concerning themselves with Nordic hedge funds. On top of the list is Stockholm based Rhenman Healthcare Equity L/S (Rhenman & Partners), run by Henrik Rhenman (pictured), followed by the Children´s Investment Master Fund, followed by Astra Structured Credit Inv. Fund (Astra Asset Management UK) and, in fourth place, Norwegian Taiga Fund (Taiga Fund Management). Taiga was awarded Best Nordic Equity Hedge Fund 2016 after being runner-up to Rhenman and Partners the previous years.
Rhenman Healthcare Equity L/S just recently were distinguished as top performing hedge fund at the 2017 Nordic Hedge Award, over the twelve and sixty month periods. The fund was also awarded as Best Nordic Equity Hedge Fund 2017, and best Nordic Hedge Fund 2017 (overall).
The performance award for the thirty-six month period went to Accendo Capital. This fund was likely not listed by Prequin as AuM currently lies around 70 million Euros, under Prequins 100 million Dollar requirement.
