The EuroHedge Awards are the most influential hedge fund awards in the annual calendar, with the best performing funds all vying for industry wide recognition and celebration. The event's unique, performance-based evaluation metrics mean that winning a EuroHedge Award is a critical success factor for funds seeking to attract investment and key staff.

Reflecting on the challenging period caused by Coronavirus, Will Wainewright, Editor, Eurohedge, commented “After such a strong 2019, returns in the first quarter disappointed last year. The virus upset investor confidence and sparked the quickest bear market on record in March, catching out many funds. But the ensuing months saw a comeback as markets were boosted by efforts to contain the virus, together with fiscal and monetary support packages. Trades put down during the chaos of Q1 bore fruit.”

Celebrating their 20th anniversary, the Covid-19 pandemic meant that the Awards were celebrated virtually for the first time to provide a platform to still reward those hedge funds leading the way in a tough market and bring industry heavyweights together to celebrate, connect and network.
