About the Hedge Fund Industry Awards
Institutional Investor magazine's Hedge Fund Industry Awards recognize the hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, investment consultants, endowments, foundations, family offices, corporate funds, sovereign funds, public funds and rising stars that stood out for their innovation, achievement and contribution to the industry in the previous year. Following a public call for nominations, the editorial staff of Institutional Investor magazine selects award nominees based on how strongly candidates, both those put forward via the call for nominations and those independently identified by the editorial staff, meet the criteria for their respective categories. Once the nominees are publicly announced, the magazine group then conducts a wide survey of U.S. institutional investors and invites them to vote for the manager nominees. Hedge fund managers are also invited to vote for the investor nominees. Institutional Investor's editorial staff analyzes the results of the voting to determine the winners, who are announced at the annual awards dinner and ceremony, held at the Mandarin Oriental in NYC.
