1. Hedgeweek 2014 Global Awards Reader Survey

* 1. Dear Reader,

Hedgeweek 2014 Global Awards

We are conducting a survey of the Hedgeweek readership to assess the best hedge fund performers and service providers during 2013 (for the twelve month period ending 30 November 2013) in a range of categories covering the entire hedge fund space. Managers and service providers are welcome to nominate their own funds/firms – with relevant justification.

Please make your nominations by completing this survey.

The deadline for nominations is early January 2014.

The results from this survey will be presented in aggregate and all individual answers to this survey will be confidential. The awards represent a key marketing opportunity for winners, who will be awarded their prizes at an awards lunch in London at the end of February 2014.

We look forward to sharing the results of this survey with you soon.

Regards,


The Hedgeweek Team
