Institutional Investor's Annual Hedge Fund Industry Awards recognizes the hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, investment consultants, endowments, foundations, family offices, corporate funds, public funds, sovereign funds and rising stars that stood out for their performance innovation, achievements and contributions to the industry in the past year.
Following a public call for nominations, the editorial staff of Institutional Investor selects award nominees based on how strongly candidates — both those put forward via the call for nominations and those independently identified by the editorial staff — meet the criteria for their respective categories. Once the nominees are publicly announced, the group then conducts a wide survey of U.S. institutional investors and invites them to vote for the manager nominees. Hedge fund managers are invited to vote for the allocator nominees. Institutional Investor's editorial staff analyzes the results of the voting to determine the winners.
Qualified nominees should be public plans, corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, family offices, or sovereign wealth funds that have demonstrated excellence in absolute return investing during the past year. Although 2022 investment returns are very important to the ultimate selection, consideration will also be given to investors’ long-term performance and overall ability to construct and manage a hedge fund portfolio.
