London, 27th March 2015 – HedgePo, has announced the winners of its Investors Choice Awards 2015 for the EMEA region.  The annual Investors Choice Awards honors fund managers that have achieved outstanding risk adjusted absolute returns.  This year, Carlisle Management proudly received the 2014 Insurance Fund of the Year for its Luxembourg Life Fund: Long Term Growth Fund FCP SIF.

Award finalists were honored and the winners announced at a gala dinner at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel in London. “The winners of the night were chosen by experienced investors, people who can evaluate funds on more than just performance, and this is what makes the awards special for the funds and fund managers” said David Tawil, co-founder of HedgePo.

The awards were judged by a distinguished panel of institutional investors taking into account, holistically,  a set of qualitative performance measures and criteria covering the investment process, risk management framework and depth of research team, as well as quantitative performance measures including annualized returns, volatility and maximum drawdown. Scores for the qualitative and quantitative sets of criteria are then calculated and combined in equal measure to reach the total score. This total score determines the winner in each category.

Ryan Kalish, co-founder of HedgePo said, “With 1400+ funds piping their data to 700 institutional investors & family offices through HedgePo, the portal provides the natural forum for the Investors Choice Awards judging to take place.”

Carlisle happily accepted the award for Best Insurance Fund of 2104.  “We at Carlisle are honored simply to have been considered for this award amongst such an elite group of industry participants, winning is just the icing on the cake,” stated Carlisle’s Chief Executive, Jose Garcia. “These types of honors only further strengthen the resolve of our team to strive to offer the best possible investing opportunities to our investors and to further expand our leadership role in this industry.” Carlisle Management Company was nominated for this award alongside some of the industry’s most reputable participants, including Leadenhall Capital Partners LLP and Twelve Capital, who were also shortlisted for the award.
