Why Enter?

Covid-19 has highlighted the need for hedge fund managers to have the right service provider relationships to continue to operate without disruption and overcome the challenges they are facing.

After another challenging year which has left many funds in need of high quality and innovative solutions in order to deliver returns, the HFM European Services Awards recognize and reward those companies who are leading the way in product and service development and delivery.

Ensuring excellence is recognised

The rigorous judging process, based on the views of a panel of leading hedge fund COOs, CFOs, CCOs, GCs and CTOs, ensure that the HFM European Services Awards stand out from the crowd as the ones the big providers really want to win and recognise those driving up service standards across the sector.

To add further scrutiny to the process we will invite shortlisted firms for selected award categories to attend face-to-face judging sessions where they will pitch their entries to a selection of the judging panel.

Why be involved?


Stand out from the crowd

After a challenging period which has left many funds in need of excellent and innovative solutions in order to move forward, it is pivotal to be showcased as a leader in the field. Winning a HFM European Services Award will give you the stamp of approval you need to win new clients.

Rigorous Judging

The rigorous judging process has been designed to ensure that all entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen. The judging panel is made up of leading hedge fund professionals specially selected for their wealth of experience within the industry.

Global Exposure

Shortlisted and winning organisations will receive coverage of their achievements through With Intelligence’s channels as well as being provided with marketing assets to use in their own collateral. The prestige and reputation behind With Intelligence is the perfect driving force to stand out amongst the hedge fund services community.

Networking and celebration

The HFM European Services Awards provide the opportunity to celebrate and reward your team for their hard work, catch-up with peers from across the industry and demonstrate to your clients that you are at the forefront of the sector.
