The awards are recognised as the most prestigious for the European hedge fund industry.

The reputation of Hedge Funds Review for fair and unbiased reporting extends to the European Performance Awards. The awards attract the top names from the industry and recognise true performance, skill and expertise as well as outstanding individuals.

The hedge fund investment process relies on more than just numbers. Our judging process recognises this. Expert judging panels review the risk and return characteristics of each entry and then make a decision after vigorous discussion, taking into account qualitative factors and drawing on the experience and knowledge of each judge to agree winners in each category.
