The Event

The Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards 2012 took place on 25th May 2012, marking another year of success as Eurekahedge celebrated the best of the Asian hedge fund industry. With 320 hedge fund players in attendance, Eurekahedge gave credit to the top achievers of 2011 and 1Q 2012 and were pleased to welcome many new faces among this year’s event.

Our partnership with the RICE fund this year saw SGD$44,000 being raised from the charity auction. This amount will be dedicated towards RICE’s philanthropic efforts in improving the lives of children across Asia via their respective charities. We thank all winning bidders for their contributions to supporting this cause.

Eurekahedge would also like to take this opportunity to thank our many sponsors, participants, delegates and judges who were committed to the success of this year’s awards. We appreciate the continued support and look forward to another eventful year in 2013.

Nomination/Judging Methodology

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 and operating as at the end of April 2012 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 2011 performance, also evaluates 1Q 2012 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.

Judges

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.
