Breton Hill Capital named Best Overall Canadian Hedge Fund at the Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards 2013

TORONTO, July 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Breton Hill Capital Ltd. received the prestigious Best overall Canadian hedge fund at the Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards 2013 last night at a reception held at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. The event recognizes the best hedge funds and fund of hedge funds in the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

"We are honoured to be recognized as the top Canadian hedge fund at a distinguished event like the Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards," said Ray Carroll, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner, Breton Hill Capital Ltd. "We launched Breton Hill in 2011 with the vision of creating a specialist macro investment firm that has unique expertise in profiting from market trends. Our strong performance over the past two years is a result of relentless efforts from our team to execute on that vision, and ongoing support from CalPERS." The California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS), North America's largest public pension fund, chose Breton Hill as their first seed investment with a hedge fund manager.

Breton Hill's flagship macro funds seek to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation and absolute returns that do not rely on rising equity or bond markets. The firm focuses on identifying trends in equities, currencies, and commodities, and adding value through active risk management, trading and security selection.

The selection process for the Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards follows a rigorous quantitative and qualitative analysis whereby funds that have top quartile performance are ranked based on returns, Sharpe ratio and downside deviation. The funds with the best aggregate ranking make the long list of 10 funds in each category that goes before the panel of judges. In selecting the winning funds, the judging panel considers the quantitative analysis as well as their qualitative experience and expertise.
