Nominations for 2016 Nordic Hedge Award

The organizer ranked all funds eligible for nomination according to a calculation model co-developed with Stockholm School of Economics based on data drawn from the Nordic Hedge Index. This model  translates the funds´ results into points earned for various achievement. Points are awarded for absolute performance, stability of returns, performance in relation to historic returns of the respective fund, performance in relation to the defined benchmark (subindex within NHX) and risk adjusted returns after being weighted with multipliers. (As example, points scored for returns in relation to benchmark could be awarded with a factor of 1,25 ).

The top five scorers of each category are defined as “short listed” and are nominated for the Nordic Hedge Award. The short list may be extended by aditional funds for (a) any fund that scores 85% of points achieved of the highest point scorer (b) any fund that scores 90% of points achieved by the third ranked fund. The short list then will be handed to Jury members, who will ad or subtract points per fund to determine the final ranking.

  • Absolute Performance 2016
  • Relative Performance 2016 (Respective NHX Sub-Index and over all universe)
  • Sharpe Ratio 2016
  • Absolute Performance – long term
  • Sharpe Ratio – long term
