- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Since 2015, one of the categories celebrated at the Nordic Hedge Award is for the most promising new launch among Nordic hedge funds. Funds will be considered as “Nordic Hedge Fund Rookie of the Year” have a track record of fewer than 15  months but have at least three monthly NAV preceding the year-end net asset value (NAV) of the respective fund. Funds must be listed in the  Nordic Hedge Index and meet the criteria required for such listing. There are no minimum / maximum requirement for assets under management.

For the “2018 Rookie of the Year”, the following funds are qualified:

Calculo Evolution FundAsgard Fixed Income Risk PremiaNordic Cross Credit EdgeHandelsbanken Hållbarhet Hedge Criteria

Innolab Capital IndexYggdrasil Multi-Asset FundCoeli Altrua MacroCoeli Absolute European Equity
Chelonia Market NeutralEvli Factor Premia

Unlike the other, regular categories where a quant model is used in combination with a jury board of representatives of asset owners and allocators, the Nordic hedge fund rookie of the year is determined by other fund managers, making this a prized peer award.

The jury for the Nordic hedge fund rookie of the year is put together of Soren Astrup (Formuepleje Asset Management), Stefan Roos (Origo Capital), Thomas Elofsson (Catella Fonder), Eyvind Holt (KLP) and last year´s Rookie of the Year, Daniel Pedersen ( Moma Advisors/Asgard).

The winner will be announced on April 10 at the final event to the Nordic Hedge Award. To learn more about the “Nordic Hedge Fund Rookie of the Year” and previous winners, please click here: Rookie of the Year
