A Return to Normal

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – A good chunk of the Nordic hedge fund industry has been shortlisted for the 2021 HFM European Performance Awards, which recognizes and celebrates the best performing hedge funds, CTAs and funds of hedge funds in Europe. Investin Othania Etisk Formuevækst, Estlander & Partners Glacies and Lynx Constellation well compete for “Newcomer” awards.

More than ten Nordic hedge funds were shortlisted for last year’s edition of the HFM European Performance Awards, with Accendo Capital, CABA Hedge and Elementa bringing home awards. After more than a year of virtual events and remote working, HFM European Performance Awards 2021 will mark a return to in-person events and be hosted at York Lawns within Regent’s Park in London on July 6. The HFM European Performance Awards winners are determined by a judging panel made up of institutional and private investors and investment consultants. Each judging panel member will have equal weight in choosing the winners in each category they are assigned.

This year’s judging panel, which includes Per Ivarsson, Head of Investment Management of Stockholm-based CTA specialist RPM Risk & Portfolio Management, focuses on absolute performance, the standard deviation of returns and outperformance of relevant HFM benchmarks to determine the winners. The members of the judging panel also take into consideration relative assets under management, the nature of investment strategies, track records, and other supporting materials and professional knowledge about shortlisted funds.
