London, England (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
The Finisterre Credit Fund, Finisterre Capital’s $550m emerging market-focused credit strategy, has been voted best credit fund with over $300m in assets at the 2013 HFMWeek European Performance Awards.
This marks the fourth time that Finisterre Capital, the long/short emerging market total return specialist, has won a performance award for one of its funds at the HFMWeek event, and the second time the Credit Fund has been recognised. In 2010, Finisterre Capital’s Sovereign Debt Fund was named ‘Best Fixed Income Fund’ while its Special Situations Fund – later renamed the Finisterre Credit Fund - was voted winner of the ‘Best Newcomer (Other)’ category. At the 2012 awards, Finisterre’s Sovereign Debt Fund was named Best Emerging Markets Fund.
The HFMWeek award is given to companies that have outperformed their peer group over the course of 2012, and is judged both quantitatively and qualitatively. The award specifically assesses financial progress, growth and innovation.
Rafael Biosse Duplan, Portfolio Manager of the Credit Fund, commented: “Emerging market credit has been and continues to be an attractive asset class. Overall, it can offer high returns with low volatility, and this award from HFMWeek recognises the superior returns we are able to deliver to our investors.”
