Tuesday, March 30, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update – Newedge, a global leader in multi-asset brokerage and clearing, was named the winner of the Best Prime Broker Capital Introduction Award at the HFMWeek European Performance Awards 2010. The event took place on March 25 at the Hurlingham Club in London.

Newedge, through its Prime Brokerage business line, has become a leading independent prime broker servicing liquid hedge funds employing Managed Futures, Global Macro, Fixed-Income Arbitrage, Quantitative, Market Neutral or Long/Short Equity and Volatility Arbitrage strategies. It offers clients a multi-asset class prime brokerage platform covering a variety of financial and commodity assets and instruments including listed products, equities, fixed income, interest rates, foreign exchange and commodities.

The Capital Introduction team, headed globally by Duncan Crawford, leverages its strong working relationships across a broad range of investors from seed allocators to later-stage investor and works closely with both investors and fund managers to support their objectives and strategies.

Philippe Teilhard, Global Head of the Prime Brokerage business line, said: “This proves Newedge’s competitive edge in the capital introduction area. By working on an un-biased basis throughout the life cycle of a fund and right down to the investment strategy level, the team is able to deliver valuable services for both managers and investors.

"This approach is greatly underpinned by the research products of our global Investor Research team expertly led by Brian Walls. This award also reflects Newedge’s rising status as we continue to emerge as a leading participant in this evolving, dynamic market.”
