Now in the 16th year, the HFM U.S. Performance Awards recognize U.S. fund performance covering a range of fund strategies—from credit and equity to macro and managed futures.

The HFM U.S. Performance Awards 2022 categories were developed in consultation with the industry to ensure they were representative of the broad and fast-moving nature of the hedge fund sector. Eligible funds had to satisfy criteria such as base of operation in North America, monthly data submitted for their USD share class, submission of assets under management, and performance track record. The judging criteria was carefully considered and structured to result in funds across various strategies being recognized and rewarded for their high achievements.

This year’s HFM U.S. Performance Awards will take place on October 18 in New York. Winners of each category will be announced at the awards ceremony.
