Like Comment

In a fast-moving environment where firms are increasingly leaning on their service providers for support, it is important to recognize and reward those companies that are leading the way in terms of product and service development and delivery, making them integral to ensuring the hedge fund industry operates smoothly.

Returning for their 12th year, the HFM US Services Awards celebrate providers of services and solutions to the US hedge fund industry that have demonstrated exceptional innovation, customer service and business performance over the past 12 months.

After a year of virtual events and remote working, we know that the industry is looking forward to meeting face-to-face with peers and friends across the sector once again and we are pleased to announce that the HFM US Services Awards 2021 will mark a return to in-person events and be hosted at Guastavino's in New York on September 22.
