The Nordic Hedge Award

The Process

Step 1: Quantitative Score

A list of five nominated funds per category is determined through a quantitative model co-developed by HedgeNordic and the Swedish House of Finance.

Step 2: Qualitative Score

A jury of industry professionals judges the nominated funds based on qualitative criteria.

Step 3: Aggregation

In the last step, the quantitative and qualitative scores are aggregated at equal weighting to create the final scores, and thus, the rankings.

Hedge funds outperforming their respective strategy categories have a higher chance of being nominated for the “Best Nordic Hedge Fund - Overall” category due to one of the five measures in the quantitative model that considers 12-month returns over peers. This measure rewards funds outperforming peers in a poorly-performing category.
Funds and managers will be presented with “Performance Awards” for the highest net performance among all hedge funds within the universe of the Nordic Hedge Index over 12 month, 36 month and 60 month-periods preceding the year-end. No other criteria will be used or influence the results for determining the winners of the Performance Awards.
Hedge funds considered for the “Rookie of the Year” award of a given year are launched during the rolling 12-month period through the end of September of that year. Funds launched later than September of that year will qualify for next year’s “Rookie of the Year” award. Funds must be listed in the HedgeNordic databases and Nordic Hedge Index and meet the criteria required for such listing. A jury put together of the former winners of the Nordic Hedge Award and other hedge fund managers will, based on a questionnaire, determine the “Best New Nordic Hedge Fund Launch.”
