Our heritage

For 13 years, the HFM European Services Awards have been celebrating the successes of the European hedge fund industry and grown to be a keenly anticipated staple in the calendar.

Due to Covid-19, the 2021 and 2020 Awards were held virtually alongside the HFM European Leadership Forums, providing an opportunity for shortlisted and winning firms to have their achievements showcased in front of hedge fund leaders.

For 2022, we are excited to be able to bring the industry together in-person once again to celebrate, network and entertain.
