ABOUT THE AWARD METHODOLOGY
The BarclayHedge approach to selecting the 2014 Pinnacle Award nominees & winners is based on a group of quantitative manager performance metrics most commonly used by investors. A mixture of interviews and surveys were conducted with professional asset allocators to determine (1) which criteria are most useful to them in their selection process for managers and (2) how those criteria ranked in order of importance. The top five performance metrics (based on aggregate ranking score) were selected and each metric was given a unique “weight” to compute the final score of qualified CTA programs in each award category. The three programs with the best scores in each category are selected as the nominees, and the program with the top score will be named the winner.
