Following a public call for nominations, the editorial staff of Institutional Investor selects award nominees based on how strongly candidates — both those put forward via the call for nominations and those independently identified by the editorial staff — meet the criteria for their respective categories. Once the nominees are publicly announced, the group then conducts a wide survey of U.S. institutional investors and invites them to vote for the manager nominees. Hedge fund managers are invited to vote for the allocator nominees. Institutional Investor's editorial staff analyzes the results of the voting to determine the winners, who are announced at the annual awards dinner and ceremony, to be held this year at the Mandarin Oriental in NYC.
