The Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards 2018 will be returning to Capella Singapore on 25 May 2018.
250 attendees turned up last year at the 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 2017 included 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 were also pleased to welcome CTI Capital Global Opportunities Fund as the Best New Asian Hedge Fund for 2017.
Congratulations were 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 last 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.
Eurekahedge would like to thank all industry players who have continually supported the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards through sponsorships, judging and selection of nominees and winners, as well as event attendees.
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 2018, 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 2017 performance, also evaluates 1Q 2018 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.
This year, Eurekahedge will be partnering 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.
