IAIR Awards 2011, II edition, took place successfully on November 11, 2011 at the Visconti palace in Milan, Italy. The IAIR winners and nominees were selected through an independent survey of investors covering all different areas of alternative investments. The online survey was conducted through the IAIR’s readership, an international editorial staff, reporters and global opinion leaders. The survey showed how market professionals, individual and institutional investors viewed their service providers in terms of overall quality of service.
The Excellence in Alternative Investments, Hedge – Rising Star was awarded to Beneficentia Fund Management in recognition of their expertise for alternative investments. Beneficential Fund Management achieved excellent performance and confirmed itself as one of the leading companies in the sector of managed futures, private equity special solutions, and multi-asset defensive strategy.
Gino Vandersteen and Stefaan De Jaeger-Braet, founding and executive directors of Beneficentia Fund Management, were very pleased with the results, particularly as this young management company had its beginnings through a dynamic partnership only 3 years ago following a decade of excellence in managed accounts.
“Since the launch of our Managed Accounts in 2003, our performance has been exceptional and consistent with a net yield of more than 2800%. Our funds are replicating this consistency and our award confirms the value of Beneficentia’s trading methodology and approach to risk management” said Gino Vandersteen.
“This award recognizes our achievements but also strengthens the confidence in our model and values as we continue to deliver growth with improvement,” said Stefaan De Jaeger-Braet.
