The HFM US Hedge Fund Performance Awards are prestigious awards within the US Hedge Fund industry, with many well-established funds vying for its recognition. A panel of judges comprised of well-regarded institutional and private investors and specialist investment consultants create a shortlist of the top contenders among these funds, then selects the winners among these top contenders. These judges have selected AIP from Canada to be on this prestigious shortlist of top contenders, such as Citadel, Orchard, Aequim, Barnegat and many other well-known funds.

Jay Bala, co-founder and President of AIP, commented: “It is reassuring to know that we are recognized for providing value to our clients, be they institutional or retail investors. Not only has our Fund continued to provide returns in this global low-yield environment, but we believe it continues to provide diversification benefits within portfolios as it is structured to have a low-correlation to traditional asset classes. Our Fund has provided an average return of 37.28% per year since its inception in 2013. Even in 2020, where the economy has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fund has generated positive results in each month and YTD is up 9.76%.”

Alex Kanayev, co-founder and Chairman of AIP, further added: “We founded AIP with a strong belief in its innovative investment approach, product structuring and team building. We continue to be pleased that AIP has won several awards in previous years and that it continues to gain recognition in the US having been shortlisted again in the HFM US Hedge Fund Performance Awards. This is an honour for us and confirmation our innovative investment approach works well regardless of the market direction.”
