AsiaHedge Awards 2014

Quantedge, Value Partners, Akito lead 2014 AsiaHedge Awards winners

The macro-focused Quantedge Global Fund, managed by Singapore-based Quantedge Capital, led the line-up of winners at the AsiaHedge Awards 2014 – winning the trophy for the overall Fund of the Year at a glittering industry gala dinner that was held at the Island Shangri-La hotel in Hong Kong today.

In a double triumph underlining the fund's eye-catching performance over the 12-month period on which the awards were judged (from September 2013 to August 2014) – in which the $1 billion fund returned a remarkable 88.49%, with a Sharpe ratio of 3 – Quantedge Global also landed the award for best Macro, Managed Futures, Commodities and FX fund.

Also among this year's winners were long-established Asian asset management firm Value Partners, which won the coveted Management Firm of the Year title, and the Japanese equity-focused Akito Fund, which took the award for best Long Term Performance over five years. Australia's Ellerston Australian Market Neutral Fund won the New Fund of the Year award.
