Top Contender for a 2022 Canadian Hedge Fund Award
- We launched our Veritas Absolute Return Fund three years ago to action the long and short ideas of our sister company, Veritas Investment Research Corp. Last year was a strong one for the fund as it is a Top Contender for a 2022 Canadian Hedge Fund Award in the Equity-Focused 1-Year Return category. Not that long ago, Canada's hedge fund space was small and niche. But not anymore, with 246 Canadian hedge funds considered for a 2022 CHFA. The awards will be presented on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at a gala awards dinner at One King West Hotel in Toronto.
