and

The inaugural Private Equity Wire & Hedgeweek European Credit Awards recognise excellence among private equity fund managers and service providers in Europe across a wide range of categories

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 Wednesday 28th September, at the Kimpton Fitzroy, London. With the final result widely distributed across social media and to Hedgeweek’s and 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 31st May 2021 to 31st May 2022 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 and over $50 million (except the Emerging Manager category, which can be up to $50m) in AuM.
  2. The Emerging Manager award categories include UK and European-based single-manager hedge funds with a track record of less than 3 years. These categories have no AUM minimum.
  3. Nominations for all categories are based on annualised performance over a 12-month period from 31st May 2021 to 31st May 2022.
  4. Managers will only be considered for selection if they report performance data to Bloomberg. To find out more about this process, please contact: isabel.hibberd@globalfundmedia.com.

For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 100 fund managers and other key industry participants. Nominations for these categories are based on performance over a 12-month period, from 31st May 2021 to 31st May 2022.
