The 16th annual Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards ceremony will be taking place on 24 May 2019 at JW Marriott South Beach Hotel in Singapore. Stay tuned for more updates.
On 25 May 2018, the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards ceremony took place with a crowd of 230 attendees coming together to celebrate the 85 best performing Asian hedge funds of 2017. The Best Asian Hedge Fund award went to Red Cliff Asia Fund – an Asia focused relative value player.
Winners who swept their nomination categories are Black Crane Asia Opportunities Fund who were named Best Asian Event Driven Fund for the second year running, and Best Asia ex-Japan Hedge Fund. Also included in this double winner list is Hayate Japan Equity Long Short Fund for clinching Best Japan Hedge Fund and Best Singapore-based Hedge Fund.
Other notable winners are Akito Fund who held on to their title of Most Consistent Asia-based Fund and Credence Global with Best Asia-based CTA/Managed Futures Fund – both for the third consecutive year since 2016. Malabar India Fund is also a returning winner, having been named Best Indian Hedge Fund for the second consecutive year.
Parantoux Vintage Fund joins our hall of fame as the Best New Asian Hedge Fund for this year. Other new winners joining in this year include TX Capital Value Fund (Best Greater China Hedge Fund), Prudence Enhanced Income Fund (Best Asian Fixed Income Fund), Pinpoint Multi-Strategy Fund (Best Asian Multi-Strategy Fund), Brilliant Partners Fund (Best Asian Long/Short Equity Fund), Arete Macro Fund (Best Asia-based Global Macro Fund), and Quantedge Global Fund (Best Asian Billion Dollar Hedge Fund).
As always, Eurekahedge would like to thank everyone for their continuous support of the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards through sponsorships, judging and selection of nominees and winners.
The Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards have had award categories across the board in regional and strategic mandates that not only reflect the industry’s performance but also highlight outstanding performers of the year.
Nominees for the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards are selected through voting by an independent panel of judges, from a working list of funds reporting to the Eurekahedge databases. All Asian hedge funds listed with Eurekahedge, operating as at end-April 2019, and have reported their latest performance and AUM numbers are eligible for nomination. A master file of all eligible funds for each of the award categories (according to their regional/strategic mandates) will be compiled and circulated among the judges to facilitate nomination for the awards (note: consequently, it is not unlikely that the same fund would be nominated for multiple awards).
Once the votes are collated and the list of nominees finalised, the winners are selected by the panel of judges, weighing in on both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the funds in question. The quantitative discussion, while mainly based on 2018 performance, also evaluates 1Q 2019 risk/return metrics, on grounds of consistency in fund performance. The selection of nominees and winners is entirely under the remit of the panel of judges, and the role of Eurekahedge in this endeavour is limited to supplying data and moderating the discussion.
The winners are selected by an independent panel of judges based on both quantitative data and qualitative knowledge of the funds listed in the Eurekahedge database. Our esteemed panel of judges have a combined total of 102 years investing in the hedge fund industry.
In 2018, Eurekahedge partnered with Down Syndrome Association (Singapore). Down Syndrome Association (Singapore) – DSA(S), was borne out of love and devotion by a group of parents of children with Down syndrome. The Association was established in September 1996 and aims to support and educate families, professionals and the general public about the genetic conditions.
DSA(S), a primarily self-funding & non-profit Voluntary Welfare Organisation (WWO), works closely and regularly with health and educational professionals and VWOs in support of persons with Down syndrome. They are officially recognised by the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and is registered as a charity organisation with the Commissioner of Charities, Singapore.
At DSA(S), they depend largely on the generosity and support of corporates and the community to continue with their work in providing education and training to support their members through a wide range of meaningful enrichment and developmental programmes. Education support includes Infant & Toddler Programme, Integration Facilitation Support Programme, and Adult Enhancement Programme; enrichment classes cover dance, aikido, speech & drama, and many more.
