Metrica Asia Event Driven Master Fund, an investment fund managed by Metrica Partners, has been nominated in the category of “Best New Asian Hedge Fund” at the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards 2018.

Damian L. Edwards, Chief Investment Officer of Metrica Partners, said: “We launched this fund in June 2017 when market-neutral investing seemed to be falling out of favour in the face of a relentless climb in global indices. Since then, markets have stalled while our assets under management have nearly tripled, showing that there is strong demand for low-volatility, uncorrelated returns from an investment strategy in which we believe Metrica has few direct competitors.

The team has worked very hard over the last year to build a robust, institutional-quality business, and it is fantastic to see this starting to translate into wider recognition.

I’d like to thank all of our service providers who helped us get to this point, and also to thank Eurekahedge for its work in supporting the alternatives investment industry.”
