The Nordic Hedge Award (R) is set out to hour and celebrate those fund managers and funds who have a clear, direct connection to the Nordic markets. Therefor, in order to qualify being nominated and distinguished at the Nordic Hedge Award (R) the fund and / or manager must meet at least one of these criterias:
- Fund and / or fund managers domiciled in one of the Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland)
- Registered office in at least one of Nordic countries
- Significant relation and relevance to Nordic markets (investment strateg
y, management, client base, shareclass in local currency….)
Should there be doubt about a fund or fund manager meeting these qualification criteria, the Jury will make a decision to accept a fund or fund manager or not at their discretion. Jury is likely to be open and positivly biased to nominating funds when in doubt. A relation of the administrative organization or back office operations of a fund alone (example: brokerage, depository bank) do not qualify the fund or fund manager to be considered for nomination.
