Nominations for 2018 Nordic Hedge Award

The organizer ranked all funds eligible for nomination according to a calculation model co-developed with Stockholm School of Economics based on data drawn from the Nordic Hedge Index. This model translates the funds' results into points earned for various achievements. Points are awarded for absolute performance, the stability of returns, performance in relation to historic returns of the respective fund, performance in relation to the defined benchmark (subindex within NHX) and risk-adjusted returns after being weighted with multipliers. (As an example, points scored for returns in relation to benchmark could be awarded a factor of 1,25 ).

The top five scorers in each category are defined as “shortlisted” and are nominated for the Nordic Hedge Award. The shortlist may be extended by additional funds for (a) any fund that scores 85% of points achieved of the highest point scorer (b) any fund that scores 90% of points achieved by the third-ranked fund. The shortlist then will be handed to Jury members, who will add or subtract points per fund to determine the final ranking.

  • Absolute Performance 2018
  • Relative Performance 2018  (Respective to relevant NHX Sub-Index and over all universe)
  • Sharpe Ratio - 36 monhts
  • Absolute Performance – 36 months
  • Skewness

The winners of the 2018 Nordic Hedge Award will be announced on April 10th 2019 in Stockholm and presented with their trophies. Listed below are the nominated funds for the 2018 Nordic Hedge Award (updated as of February 7, 2019). Funds are listed in random order.
