"Thank you Eurekahedge for putting the event together; it was fruitful for us.” Maxine Loh Marketing Manager, OANDA
Raise your profile at the largest, most prestigious hedge fund event of the year
Inaugurated in 2005, the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards is an annual celebration of the great and the good in the Asian hedge fund space. Over 300 hedge fund industry players attend year after year making this prestigious event an important fixture on the hedge fund calendar. Last year’s event was an overwhelming success with leading figures in the alternative investment industry coming together in Singapore. Although markets conditions remained volatile in 2010, especially during the first half, Asian hedge funds continued to deliver consistent risk adjusted performance and also attracted significant capital in the second half of the year. There are only a limited number of awards and tables available so please do contact us early to seal your participation and avoid missing out.
"Thank you so much for inviting me to such a prestigious award ceremony. It was a great experience for me to meet all the high performance fund managers and investment bankers present on the night. We were very honoured to be awarded the Asian Best Event Driven Fund. Our fund members are pleased to have won the award and we will try hard to win another award next year! " Yasunori Nakagami, President Asuka Corporate Advisory
"It was a great event and I would like thank you and your team for all of their hard work." Laura Ryan Director, TORA
"We enjoyed the event and found it useful. It was well organised and fun." Marion Lang Head of Sales and Marketing, OANDA

“The 2011 Asian Hedge Fund Awards was an excellent event. It beat expectations after the bar was set so high by the 2010 awards. All in all, it was a great evening that had representation from all corners of the hedge fund business; people flying in from across Asia. The turnout was just phenomenal. Besides the nominees, winners and the award ceremony itself, everyone seemed to enjoy the opportunity to network or catch up since it’s not always one can find so many people in the business under one roof in such a pleasant environment. Standard Chartered Bank was the gala dinner sponsor for the 2nd year running and that in itself shows not only our commitment to the hedge fund client segment and our product suites catered to them but also our faith in the Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards as an excellent medium to showcase ourselves.” Udit Gambhir, Director, Transaction Banking Standard Chartered Bank (2010 & 2011 Dinner Sponsor)

the rice fund
Eurekahedge and the RICE fund are collaborating once more in 2012 to promote efforts in supporting the wellbeing of children throughout Asia via educational programs, shelter initiatives and healthcare
The RICE fund was started in 2006 by a small group of enthusiastic people from the Asian hedge fund world. Our vision was to share the success of our industry, supporting children - and children’s educational projects - within the region. Since September 2010, RICE has been registered as an International Charitable Organization (ICO) in Singapore. RICE became officially registered as a Hong Kong charity in 2011. We provide financial support and advice to organizations throughout Asia, working with children and education. We have a due diligence process in place to ensure our funding is well-targeted, efficiently deployed, with accountability. Our aim is to improve the quality of life of the children we reach, to give them access to the fundamentals for living and the opportunities the region offers: shelter, healthcare, education and access. We are committed to ensuring that all donations we receive are spent directly for the benefit of children who are in need. No donation is ever spent on running our organisation. We seek to maximize the value of its investments by prioritizing those projects which have the most difficulties securing funding, perhaps because they’ve just started, or because they are working with specific groups that are less cosmetically attractive, or groups that are socially marginalised. We often invest in the less visible parts of these projects (capacity building, staffing, overhead etc) as the “infrastructure” of a project is core to its success, but often not glamorous or easy to fund. We aim to develop long term relationships with both the individuals providing services to children and with other like-minded donors. Three children’s charities in 2011 have benefitted from RICE donations. These are: Goutte d'Eau Damnok Toeuk, an organization in Cambodia working with children living with disabilities; Starchildren / CWS, an organization in Nepal working with children infected, and affected, by HIV/Aids and Angkor Hospital for Children, a paediatric hospital and education centre for Cambodian health workers. RICE is currently reviewing a range of additional projects to support in 2012. These may include Masoom in Mumbai India and M’Lop Tapang in Cambodia. Masoom’s mission is to enable night school students to achieve their full potential through educational and policy support. M’Lop Tapang works with more than 3000 children and 900 families at nine specialized centers in the Sihanoukville region of Cambodia. They provide shelter, medical care, sports, arts, education, training, counseling, family support and protection from all types of abuse.
