Financial News was delighted to host its fifth annual Awards for Excellence in Institutional Hedge Fund Management, Europe 2015 on Wednesday, 6 May at One Mayfair, London. The black tie event honoured the stars of the European hedge fund community, recognising their excellence not only in delivering investor returns but also in areas such as regulatory innovation and earning the respect of their industry peers.

To decide the awards, a distinguished panel of investors and industry experts will voted on the nominees in each category. The panel cast their opinion on which European firms have had the most success in their sector over the past year. Our awards included Best Allocator to Hedge Funds and a Decade of Excellence Award.
