McMillan LLP has been recognized as the top Canadian law firm at a Gala Dinner recently held in conjunction with the 11th Annual Canadian Hedge Fund Awards. The awards represent the highest honour in Canada’s hedge fund industry.

“This is a tremendous acknowledgement by our clients and a recognition of the high standards of excellence we strive to set as leaders in the alternative investment industry,” said Michael Burns, partner and co-chair the Investment Funds and Asset Management Group. “Our goal is to be at the forefront of new regulatory developments (such as the recent “Liquid Alts” amendments to National Instrument 81-102) when it comes to structuring and offering of alternative investment funds, and we will continue to offer our clients, innovative, timely and strategic solutions as the industry continues to evolve at a rapid rate. We also congratulate our many clients who were recognized as top performing Funds at the Awards!”  

The Canadian Hedge Fund Awards help investors identify the most exceptional hedge funds, recognizing winners in five categories as well as the Overall Best 2018 Canadian Hedge Fund. A total of 207 Canadian hedge funds participated in the 2018 CHFA program. The awards are based solely on quantitative performance data up until June 30th, with Fundata Canada managing the collection and tabulation of the data to determine the winners. There is no nomination process or subjective assessment in identifying the winning hedge funds.

The full-day event brought together experts, such as McMillan Partner Leila Rafi, to discuss hedge fund investment practices, current market trends in Canada’s hedge fund industry and how the industry will grow moving forward. Guests included individual and institutional hedge fund investors, investment advisors, industry consultants and media.
