On Monday March 19, NAIMA’s Hedge Fund Committee met in the office of Debevoise & Plimpton (NAIMA Member) in Moscow to discuss, amongst other things, the upcoming Russian Hedge Fund Industry Awards 2018 nominations. The Awards Ceremony is part of the annual Moscow Hedge Fund Week (www.mhfweek.com), which will take place on April 4-5, 2018. This year, there will be 13 awards in total, of which nine will be given to the best performing hedge funds in the Russian hedge fund universe and four will be given to the best hedge fund service providers serving the universe.
The Committee also adopted the final version of a Disclosure Statement, which formally sets in writing the various criteria used by the Hedge Fund Committee to determine what funds qualify for inclusion into the universe, how funds are separated into the various strategy sub-categories, and what awards are alloted during Russian Hedge Fund Industry Awards. All decisions made by the Hedge Fund Committee are unanimous. This Disclosure Statement will not be a public document but will be shared with all participating hedge fund advisors.
