1. Hedgeweek USA 2013 Awards Reader Survey

* 1. Dear Reader,

The Hedgeweek USA 2013 Awards

We are conducting a survey of the Hedgeweek readership to assess the best hedge fund performers and service providers in the USA during 2012 in a range of categories covering the entire hedge fund space. To assist with the nominations, Hedgeweek has identified the leading funds for each of the fund categories based on its own research. 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 15th April 2013.

The awards represent a key marketing opportunity for winners.

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

Regards,


The Hedgeweek Team
