As we enter the final quarter of 2012, calculations will shortly begin for the eighth annual Absolute Return Awards, to be held at Gotham Hall in New York City on February 12, 2013.

The Absolute Return Awards identify the best performing U.S. hedge fund managers based on risk adjusted returns. The awards are regarded as the most prestigious and accurate in the industry, with last year's event attracting many of the largest hedge fund firms. More than 350 hedge fund managers, investors and other industry professionals will come together to celebrate the achievements of the best performing funds of the previous year.

This year's Absolute Return Awards will honor the best funds in the Americas for their performance during the full calendar year of 2012. Preliminary nominations will be announced Monday, December 3rd and will be based on 10 months of performance data.
