The Volatility & Risk Premia Awards 2019

We are seeking nominees for next year’s premier volatility and risk premia awards. The categories will focus on buyside institutional and hedge fund performance over 2018 and will also consider alternative avenues of risk premia and volatility exposure, such as overlays, mutual funds and UITs. Contact the EQD management team for further information on how to participate in the process, which will close December. Winners will be announced in January. A copy of the awards methodology can be found  here. The full list of awards categories is below.

EQDerivatives will present the Awards at a gala ceremony in New York in March. At the event, the latest inductees in to the Volatility Investing Hall of Fame will also be honored. Past inductees include Sarah Dahan at BlueMountain, Roni Israelov at AQR Capital Management, Stephen Crewe at Fulcrum Asset, Joe Aiken at Malachite Capital and Jon Loflin at Mariner Coria.
