ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sondhelm Partners today announced that it has been recognized as the Best Third-Party Marketing Firm in the Hedgeweek US Emerging Manager Awards for 2023.

Sondhelm Partners also won the Hedgeweek US Awards for 2022 in the Best Third-Party Marketing Firm category.

The annual Hedgeweek Emerging Manager US Awards recognize excellence among service providers and fund managers in the United States. The service provider categories, which include Best Third-Party Marketing Firm, span all the key areas of the broader hedge fund industry.

Hedgeweek is a highly respected leading source of news, features, and information on the hedge fund industry. Its range of analysis, curated events, and data help inform, educate, and encourage collaboration between asset managers, allocators, and service providers.

“We are thrilled to win a prestigious Hedgeweek award for the second year in a row,” said Sondhelm Partners CEO Dan Sondhelm. “We thank Hedgeweek for the recognition and the hedge fund industry for the confidence.”

“We also want to thank our clients for working with us, our strategic partners for their trust and collaboration, and our relationships – investors, intermediaries, and journalists – who are interested in unique investment opportunities in the boutique asset manager universe,” said Sondhelm. “I want to thank my team for their experience, commitment, and tenacity in working with clients. This has been key to earning this recognition.”

“Sondhelm Partners is a well-deserved winner in the third-party marketing category,” said a Hedgeweek spokesperson. “Operating in a highly competitive space, Sondhelm has demonstrated real skill, judgment, and tenacity in representing client interests and asset raising during a tough time for the hedge fund space – this accolade is richly deserved.”

The competition among service providers was based on a nationwide survey of more than 100 investment fund managers and other key industry participants. Almost 16,000 votes were cast, with 45% of those coming from managers, 18% from allocators, and 37% from service providers.

Voting for the awards was conducted via an online poll of Hedgeweek users. Participants were asked to choose from the shortlisted firms in each category.

Firms nominated to the Best Third-Party Marketing Category, in addition to Sondhelm Partners, include Agecroft Partners, Clearglass Capital Partners, PJT Park Hill, and Profor Advisors.

“Gone are the days where you build a hedge fund, and investors will find you, especially if you are a better money manager than a marketer,” said Sondhelm. “It is important to look the part of a serious hedge fund and do the right things consistently to get your story to the right investors.”

Winners of the Hedgeweek Emerging Manager US Awards attended a Reception for Fund Managers, Allocators, and Service Providers last night at Convene in New York City. Hedgeweek also hosted its annual Hedge Fund US Emerging Manager Summit.
