Announcing: Nominations for Nordic Hedge Award 2018

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – HedgeNordic is pleased to announce the nominees for the seventh edition of the Nordic Hedge Award, the annual celebration that recognizes the best Nordic hedge funds. Nominees were selected using a quantitative model co-developed with the Stockholm School of Economics.

The model translates several of each fund’s performance-related metrics into points, with these metrics including last year’s absolute performance, relative performance in 2018 (respective to relevant NHX sub-categories or the entire universe), Sharpe ratio over the past 36 months, absolute performance over the past 36 months, and skewness over the same period. Each of these five metrics has different weights in the model. The top five scorers in each category are nominated for the Nordic Hedge Award. The list of nominees will be handed to a jury board comprised of Nordic allocators, who will provide a qualitative-based scoring for each fund to determine the final ranking.

The winners of the 2018 Nordic Hedge Award will be announced on April 10th in Stockholm and presented with award trophies. See the full list of nominees here: 2018 Nordic Hedge Award Nominees

Congratulations to all nominated funds!
