We are honored to share that Welton ESG Advantage won “Best ESG Fund” at the HFM US Performance Awards on November 4, 2021.
Welton’s other two programs were also short-listed for award consideration. Welton Global was nominated for “Quantitative Strategy Under $1Bil” and Welton Trend was nominated for “Managed Futures (CTA) Under $1Bil.”
We thank HFM and the panel of institutional and private investors and investment consultants who served as judges for this event.
**To be considered for the HFM US Performance Awards 2021 a manager had to submit an application to the organizer regarding their firm and programs for review. There were no fees charged by the organizer for a manager to participate in the selection process. The awards were open to all US hedge fund, fund of funds and CTA firms. To qualify a fund’s management/advisory company or investment team must be based in North America; a minimum of $25m in AuM as of June 2021; a 3-year track record of monthly performance data through June 2021 (1-year track record required for ESG programs).
Managers were evaluated by a judging panel made up of leading institutional and private investors and investment consultants, specially selected for their wealth of experience and expertise who take account of risk-adjusted performance, AUM and professional knowledge about the manager and fund.
