AWARDS 2021 HEDGENEWS AFRICA The 13th annual HedgeNews Africa Awards took place March 10, 2022 in Cape Town

The 13th annual HedgeNews Africa Awards took place March 10, 2022 in Cape Town and we are excited to be preparing for a return to in-person events.

The Awards was hosted in conjunction with leading industry players, and will adhere to strict Covid protocols, in line with prevailing venue and government restrictions.

Our second provisional nominations for the 2021 HedgeNews Africa Awards reflect a strong contender list after a bullish November for the equity markets, with tough competition across categories.

The HedgeNews Africa South African Single-Manager Composite Index has gained 12.11% so far this year to the end of November, with mixed performance at individual fund and category level, yet many of our second nominees have delivered double-digit gains for the first 11 months.

Awards Methodology

Now in their 13th year, the HedgeNews Africa Awards are highly respected for recognising those funds that deliver the best risk-adjusted returns in any calendar year.

Nominations are based on return, with the Award in each category ultimately going to the fund that has achieved the best return provided it is within 25% of the top Sharpe ratio among the nominees.

To qualify for a nomination, funds must average a minimum of R80 million under management for the year, or $10 million in US structures. Longer-term awards require R160 million AUM, while the new fund category allows for a lower minimum.


Attendance at the 2021 Awards ceremony on March 10 is by sponsor invitation or to purchase individual seats please email for more information. Space is limited.
