Rewarding fund performance and service provider excellence across credit funds

Thursday 16 May 2024 | etc. venues, County Hall, London

The annual European Credit Awards recognise excellence in fund performance and service provider excellence across credit funds

Voting for the awards is conducted via an online poll, where participants are asked to make their choice among the shortlisted firms in each category.


The manager categories cover a wide spectrum of credit strategies and fund types, with separate sections for hedge fund and private equity credit specialists. The service provider categories span essential services across the credit fund eco-system.


All winners are invited to attend an exclusive ceremony and networking event on Thursday 16th May, at etc. venues, County Hall, London. With the final result widely distributed across social media and to Private Equity Wire’s 100,000+ user base.

Methodology

Pre-selection data for the awards is provided by Bloomberg, based on annualised returns over the 12 months from January 1st – December 31st 2023 by funds in the below categories. Nominations in various award categories are further split by size and strategy as specified in the award name.


  1. The manager award categories include UK and European-based single-manager and multi-manager funds with a track record of more than 3 years.
  2. Nominations for all categories are based on annualised performance over a 12-month period from 1st January – 31st December 2023.
  3. The three Credit Hedge Fund of the Year categories are based on performance metrics over the three year period ending 31st December 2023.
  4. Our expert judging panel will have the final input on the Management Company and Credit Hedge Fund of the Year awards.
  5. Managers will only be considered for selection if they report performance data to Bloomberg. To find out more about this process, please contact events@privateequitywire.co.uk.

For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 100 credit fund managers and other key industry participants.

Why should you participate?

For all the key constituents in the credit space – GPs, LPs, and service providers – the European Credit Awards provide a unique annual insight into the most highly-regarded and successful fund managers and service providers. Based on voting from within the industry itself, the results help you to make decisions and choices that can add value to your own business.


With investor interest in private credit still strong despite the current challenges, it is more important than ever to know how you are perceived and where you stand out


For Investors


Knowing which managers have outperformed in different types of credit strategies – and which service providers are rated most highly in various areas – is essential for investors. Help us to understand which firms have impressed you most.


For Managers


Identifying, and working with, the best-in-class service providers across a broad spectrum of activities and products is a key ingredient to the success of any private capital investment firm. Tell us which counter parties you rate most highly – and why.
