We ensure 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 US Services Awards truly recognize those driving up service standards across the sector and stand out from the crowd as the ones the big providers really want to win.

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?
