New York (HedgeCo.Net) – The Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards 2014 returned to Capella Singapore for its 11th run on 23 May 2014. 300 hedge fund players got together to celebrate the region’s 76 top performing Asian hedge funds.
A total of 14 awards were presented on the night with The SFP Value Realization Fund clinching two of the three awards they were nominated for; the Best Asian Hedge Fund award, along with the Best Asian Event Driven Fund award for the second consecutive year.
Their double win was closely followed by Fortress Asia Macro Fund who held on to their titles from 2013 (Best Asia-based Macro Fund and Best Singapore-based Hedge Fund; both for the second consecutive year). Nominated in three categories this year, new winner Hayate Japan Equity Long Short Fund won the Best Japan Hedge Fund and Best Asian Long/Short Equities Fund award. Another fund holding on to their 2013 title was GCI Japan Hybrids (Best Asian Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund).
The rest of the region’s top performers were Orchid China Master Fund (Best Greater China Hedge Fund), Steinberg India Emerging Opportunities Fund (Best India Hedge Fund) and K2 Asian Absolute Return Fund (Best Asia ex-Japan Hedge Fund). We also welcomed newcomer Auscap Long Short Australian Equities Fund (Best New Asian Hedge Fund) to the industry.
Winners of the strategic investment mandate awards include Boronia Diversified Fund (Best Asia-based CTA/Managed Futures Fund), Regal Amazon Market Neutral Fund (Best Asian Relative Value Fund), Terra Grove Japan Fund (Best Asian Quant Fund) and GCI Japan Hybrids (Best Asian Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund).
For 2014, Eurekahedge picked Children of Cambodia; a Singapore-based charity association to receive the proceeds from this year’s charity auction. A silent auction of three paintings and a live auction of one painting was held to raise funds. The funds will be donated to support Children of Cambodia’s partner, the Angkor Hospital for Children. Eurekahedge would like to extend our appreciation to all winning bidders for contributing to this cause.
