Institutional Investor magazine's 16th Annual Hedge Fund Industry Awards recognizes the hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, investment consultants, endowments, foundations, family offices, corporate funds, public funds, sovereign funds and rising stars that stood out for their performance innovation, achievements and contributions to the industry in the past year.
Award nominees will be honored and winners announced and awarded at a dinner and ceremony at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City on Thursday, June 28, 2018. Last year's event hosted more than 450 industry leaders.
We hope you'll be a part of this year's night of networking and celebration!

Following a public call for nominations, the editorial staff of Institutional Investor magazine 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 magazine 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 investor 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.
