Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – HedgeNordic is delighted to announce the nominees for the 2021 Nordic Hedge Award. The annual distinction is set to distinguish outstanding hedge fund managers from and active in the Nordic region. Nominees were selected using a quantitative model co-developed with the Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics.

All funds with a minimum track record of 36 months that are listed in the Nordic Hedge Index are considered for the Nordic Hedge Award. The nominees were selected using a model that translates several of each fund’s performance-related metrics into a quant score. These metrics include last year’s absolute performance, relative performance in 2021 (respective to relevant NHX sub-categories), Sharpe ratio over the past 36 months, absolute performance over the past 36 months, and skewness over the same period as a measure of downside risk.

Each of these five metrics has different weights in the model. The five scorers with the highest combined quant scores 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.

We are thrilled that the final event of the 2021 Nordic Hedge Award will take place in the flesh, with the winners set to be announced on April 27th, 2022 in Stockholm. See the full list of nominees here:
