Nominees for theEurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awardsare selected through voting by an independent panel of judges, from a working list of funds reporting to the Eurekahedge databases. All Asian hedge funds listed with Eurekahedge, operating as at the end April 2015, and have reported their latest performance and AUM numbersare eligible for nomination. A master file of all eligible funds for each of the award categories (according to their regional/strategic mandates) will be compiled and circulated among the judges to facilitate nomination for the awards (note: consequently, it is not unlikely that the same fund would be nominated for multiple awards).
Once the votes are collated and the list of nominees finalised, the winners are selected by the panel of judges, weighing in on both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the funds in question. The quantitative discussion, while mainly based on 2014 performance, also evaluates 1Q 2015 risk/return metrics, on grounds of consistency in fund performance.

3 nights stay at Dhensa Boutique Resort Punakha, Bhutan
Nestled on the slopes of Punakha Valley in the kingdom of Bhutan, Dhensa is a world apart. A simple proposition to revive your senses; immerse in the peace and beauty of nature at its most brilliant. Flanked by thick pine forests, the resort overlooks the Punakha river and hundreds of padi fields that stair step down to the valley floor. The resort combines contemporary design with Bhutan ancient and alluring ways. At the core of the Dhensa Punakha philosophy lies the sense of innocence and peace that permeates everything about Bhutan.
The 24 suites are set in six (6) separate cottages, all with private balconies with an ottoman daybed. Nourishing, nurturing food unashamedly uncomplicated can be found at the resort restaurant, which uses seasonal, local and organic produce farm to table where possible. Guests will have time to re discover what nature has to offer since the dawn of time and reconnect with those simple luxuries that have been forgotten in day to day life. A mid morning picnic, a quiet trek, or an opportunity to experience rice threshing with the locals as a glimpse of local sustenance. A return to the purest form of luxury. A return to innocence.
