Nominations for the 2022 Nordic Hedge Award

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – HedgeNordic is delighted to announce the nominees for the 2022 Nordic Hedge Award. The annual distinction is set to distinguish outstanding hedge fund managers from and active in the Nordic region. Nominees were determined 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 main award categories at the Nordic Hedge Award. The nominees were selected using a model that translates a set of performance-related metrics for each fund into a quant score. These metrics include last year’s absolute performance, relative performance in 2022 (respective to relevant NHX sub-categories), as well as Sharpe ratio, skewness (as a measure of downside risk), and absolute performance over a 36-month period.

Each of these five metrics has different weights in the model. The five funds 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. Awards will be presented to the top three ranked funds of each category.

We are thrilled that the final event of the 2022 Nordic Hedge Award will take place in the flesh, with the winners set to be announced on April 19th, 2023 in Stockholm. See the full list of nominees below.
