SG Hiscock & Company launch a new Australia and Asia benchmark unaware fund

SG Hiscock & Company (SGH) is a boutique investment manager specialising in high conviction, actively managed investment strategies. These strategies cover Australian Equities and Property Securities – including Australian and global REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) and Managed Discretionary Portfolios.  SGH was established in Melbourne in mid-2001 by six of its principals and is entirely owned by staff.

The SGH Australia Plus Fund (mFund code SHF07) is a truly benchmark unaware fund that invests in 25-40 stocks with the unique ability to take non index positions in Asia (up to 20% of the portfolio).  The ability to invest in Asian stocks exposed to the rise of the Asian consumer, gives it access to a growth thematic that pure Australian equity funds can’t invest in. Through experience and quantitative screening, the investible universe is 40-50 stocks in Asia, as well as the ASX300 universe.  By design, it will provide a far greater degree of sector diversification than a pure Australian equity fund will provide, given the extreme concentration in Australia to Banks and Resources.
