JUDGING

JUDGING

The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen.

The judging panel will be made up of leading institutional and private investors and investment consultants. The judging panel will be split into groups with each group judging five or six awards each. Judges will take account of risk-adjusted performance, AuM and any professional knowledge about the fund to come to their decision.

Each judge will rank their top three funds in order in each category they are involved in to decide the winner. In the event of a tie, a judging call will take place with all the relevant judges to decide upon the winner. Judges have discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about entries and the final winners confidential.

THE JUDGING PANEL

The judges are carefully selected for their wealth of experience and expertise, as well as their absence of conflicts of interest. Click here to view the list of judges.

2018 CHARITY


This year, the HFM European Hedge Fund Performance Awards are supporting Duchenne UK.

Duchenne UK is a highly focused, ambitious and lean charity with a clear vision: to fund and accelerate treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne is a devastating muscle wasting disease and is the most common genetic killer of children worldwide. There is no treatment or cure.

In the UK there are around 2,500 boys affected and around 300, 000 worldwide. Children will be totally paralysed by their teens and won’t live beyond their 20s. But thanks to recent breakthroughs, we believe we can save them.

In the last 5 years Duchenne UK has raised over £10 million. We've spent £6.5m to date and committed a further £3.5m to accelerating research. 90% of all money raised is spent directly on research.
