Announcing the Winners of the 2019 Nordic Hedge Award


Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – HedgeNordic is pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Nordic Hedge Award. While the Nordic hedge fund community could not share a laugh, shake hands, share a drink and celebrate as we have done in previous years, we can still give a big round of applause to those determined as being the best Nordic hedge funds of 2019.

The winners of the 2019 Nordic Hedge Award were selected through a three-step process. First, out of the nearly 160 hedge funds within the universe of the Nordic Hedge Index, a model co-developed with the Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics selected the top five funds per award category. The model calculates a “quantitative” score for each fund based on several parameters such as short- and longer-term absolute, relative and risk-adjusted returns, as well as skewness in returns as a measure of downside risk. Second, qualitative ratings were assigned to each fund by a jury board comprised of industry professional to determine the “qualitative” score for each fund. Third, the quantitative and qualitative scores were equally weighted and added to create the final results and rankings.

The three best-ranked funds per award category and the respective winners are:

  1. Rhenman Healthcare Equity L/S
