Nomination/Judging Methodology

Nominees to the Asian Masters of Hedge Awards were 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 March 2009 were eligible for nomination. A master file of all eligible funds for each of the award categories (according to their regional/strategic mandates) was 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 were collated and the list of nominees finalised, the winners were 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 2008 performance, also evaluates 1Q2009 risk/return metrics, on grounds of consistency in fund performance.

The selection of nominees and winners was entirely under the remit of the panel of judges, and the role of Eurekahedge in this endeavour was limited to supplying data and moderating the discussion.

Judges

The winners were selected by an independent panel of judges based on both quantitative data and qualitative knowledge of the funds listed in the Eurekahedge database.
