NEW YORK, July 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TIG Advisors, LLC and its securitized asset strategy (TSAF) won an award for Best Fixed Income/Credit Hedge Fund by Hedge Fund Review Americas Awards on July 30, 2015 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.

Hedge Funds Review Americas Awards recognize the best hedge funds in the US, Canada and Latin America.  The judging panel considers the results of the quantitative analysis and selects a winner in each category. In selecting the winning funds, the judges take into account the quantitative analysis as well as their qualitative experience and expertise.

"Last year, we won the best emerging manager in fixed income/credit category; we graduated to best manager in the same category this year. We are honored to be recognized by Hedge Fund Review for the second year in a row. We are grateful for the esteemed panel of judges who are well known investors in the business," said Stuart Lippman, chief investment officer and co-founder of the strategy at TIG. 

"TSAF's performance is a testament to our team's ability to identify asymmetric opportunities, and use proprietary analytics to extract alpha from the market," said David Liu, chief strategist and co-founder of the strategy. "We look forward to providing our investors long-term value by taking advantage of market dislocations within the structured credit markets."

TSAF was founded by Stuart Lippman and David Liu, who together have more than three decades of experience investing in structured products. The strategy has a relative value focus, seeking to profit from both market fundamentals and dislocations created by regulatory changes, policy issues and market technicals focusing on RMBS/CMBS/ABS securities.

TSAF was launched with $50MM on October 1, 2012. Today, the combined AUM of TIG's structured credit strategy is approaching $1B. The growth in AUM was driven by steady inflows and strategy performance.
