Just like last year, the International Hedge Fund Awards are closing in and it will not be long before the results are published in the Acquisition International Magazine. With multiple elements being voted for by tens of thousands of individuals, the International Hedge Fund Awards are one of the most prestigious awards of its kind. Here is a closer look at the 2014 International Hedge Fund Awards:
What are the International Hedge Fund Awards?
Every year, for the past 3 years, BarclayHedge has sponsored the International Hedge Fund Awards, the results of which it publishes in its Acquisition International Magazine. Every year, around 100,000 individuals and professionals vote for the asset category/class it deems has truly excelled in and outperformed the market. It then awards individuals or companies that have influenced the said category.
How Many Elements Are Recognized?
There are at least 9 elements you can vote for. These include:
- Sovereign funds
- Investment consultants
- Corporate funds
- Funds of funds
- Public funds
- Family offices
- Emerging new fund
Winners of this prestigious award, and the accompanying certificate, receive a significant amount of recognition for their achievements in their respective fields, helping to dramatically improve business. Not only is their name published in the forthcoming issue of Acquisition International Magazine, they receive a copy of the current years online directory listing.
The Voters Pool
Anyone who has subscribed to the Acquisition International Magazine (over 53,000 subscribers), and are recognized and listed hedge fund professionals (40,000 individuals), are eligible to vote. Interestingly, a fund hedge fund party or individual can vote for themselves as well. However, these votes are always subject to question by an in-house process which determines the validity of the vote.
Selection of Winners
The winners are selected by considering the total number of votes, the level of contributions they made (via the in-house process) and all physical and digital evidence which supports their contributions throughout the given period. The 2014 International Hedge Fund Awards, sponsored by the prestigious hedge fund research and consultation institution BarclayHedge, provides influential hedge fund professionals and parties a chance to be globally recognized for their outstanding achievements. With little time left until the publication of the results (in January 2015), anyone who has not yet voted should do so now, or else they will miss out on the opportunity to be a part of this prominent awards ceremony.
