Rules for inclusion, entry criteria and judging decisions:

To be considered for an award, funds must submit performance data to the EuroHedge Database and have at least a 12-month track record history.

The only exception to this rule is for new fund awards where a minimum seven-month track record is required; for these awards, the funds’ whole performance history to date is taken into account.

Winners are decided using an established methodology based upon a combination of Sharpe ratios and returns over the relevant time period.

Nominations are decided by those funds in each peer group that achieve the strongest Sharpe ratios over 12 months, so long as they also beat the median returns in their relevant peer groups and are within 10% of their high-water marks.

The eventual winners will be the funds that have the best returns, as long as they also have Sharpe ratios within 25% of the best Sharpe of the nominees in their relevant peer groups.

The “Management Firm of the Year” is based on the one-year performance across a firm’s various funds.

Most of the award categories require a minimum asset level.
