Absolute Return Awards 2005

The top names and outstanding achievers from the U.S. hedge fund industry were on display at the inaugural Absolute Return Awards Dinner in New York on November 1, 2005. Winners were chosen on a quantitative basis using a method, which has been successfully used at the prestigious EuroHedge Awards dinner in London, where managers prize the recognition the awards give them and the branding they offer. The short-lists for the Awards were dominated by some of the biggest brand names in the industry, and those that came through to win featured a mixture of very well-established and newer players. Glenview Capital Partners and Clarium Capital Management were among the big winners.
