Serica Credit Balanced Fund named coveted Best Asian Hedge Fund and Best Asian Fixed Income Fund for 2017

250 attendees turned up at the latest Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards ceremony on 26 May 2017 to celebrate 64 of the best performing Asian hedge funds of 2016. Serica Credit Balanced Fund won the coveted Best Asian Hedge Fund award, along with the Best Asian Fixed Income Fund award – both categories in which they were nominated.

Their win was closely followed by Segantii Asia-Pacific Equity Multi-Strategy Fund who also secured awards in the two categories they were nominated in. The fund clinched Best Asian Multi-Strategy Fund and Best Asian Billion Dollar Hedge Fund, the third and second time they have won these awards respectively.  

Returning winners for this year include Akito Fund JPY who clinched Most Consistent Asia-based Fund and Credence Global with the Best Asia-based CTA/Managed Futures Fund award, both for the second time since 2016. We are also pleased to welcome CTI Capital Global Opportunities Fund as the Best New Asian Hedge Fund for this year.

Congratulations are also in order for the following new regional and strategic award winners whose hard work and dedication have landed them awards: KIS Asia Long Short Fund (Best Asia ex-Japan Hedge Fund), UMJ Galleyla Fund (Best Japan Hedge Fund), ZEAL China Fund (Best Greater China Hedge Fund), Sentosa Asian Credit Fund (Best Singapore-based Hedge Fund), Malabar India Fund, (Best Indian Hedge Fund), Black Crane Asia Opportunities Fund (Best Asian Event Driven Fund), L1 Capital Long Short Fund (Best Asian Long/Short Equity Fund), Ton Poh Fund (Best ASEAN Fund), and Graticule Asia Macro Fund (Best Asia-based Global Macro Fund).

A raffle draw was conducted this year to raise funds for charity partner Make-A-Wish Singapore, an organisation founded with the mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Together with the contributions from our guests, a total of S$19,000 was raised for Make-A-Wish Singapore and we are grateful for the part everyone has played to help fulfil the wishes of these children.
