Its prestige and integrity are earned by convening a panel of active leading hedge fund executives who rigorously judge nominees based on success in delivering results for their clients.

HFM evaluates nominations in 21 categories, ranging from traditional areas like accounting and workflow management, to public cloud management, cybersecurity, and disruptive technology.
