Pleased to meet you
SG Hiscock & Company is a multi award-winning boutique fund manager based in Melbourne, Australia specialising in Australian Equities and Property Securities – including Australian and global REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). We were established in 2001 by six of our principals and are entirely owned by our staff.
Our ValueActiveTM investment process
Our high-conviction active management approach is founded on our ValueActiveTM investment process – used by the team for more than a decade. It combines in depth valuation analysis with a forensic approach to company research, market fundamentals and insight. Simply put, we like to buy great sustainable companies at attractive prices.
In addition, we are firm believers in co-investment, demonstrated by our significant investment in our own funds. Our confidence in our investment approach means we always seed new funds with our own money. Another reason we believe our structure is ideal is that we have made the decision to cap our Funds Under Management at modest levels, to ensure that the funds retain greater flexibility to generate strong investment returns across varying market conditions.
In order to identify the best opportunities for our clients, we undertake a broad fundamental research program which incorporates an extensive company visitation schedule. With an experienced team of investment professionals, our approach to analysing companies is designed to ensure no stone remains unturned.
We engage with a hand picked team of external research providers to complement our insights in the macroeconomic landscape (both locally and abroad) and general investment trends. We also have an exclusive joint venture arrangement with one of the world’s largest commercial real estate investors; LaSalle Investment Management Securities, LLC is a subsidiary of global property giant, Jones Lang LaSalle. This provides our property team access to LaSalle’s research capabilities.
Our environmental, social and governance policy
SG Hiscock & Company has a formal board-endorsed environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy. This incorporates the key principles of the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors, as well as the framework provided under the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment. SG Hiscock & Company is a responsible investor and we take an active approach to integrating ESG considerations into our investment decision-making process. We believe that the effective governance and management of business risks has a direct impact on a company’s intrinsic value over the long term and helps to reduce investment risk.
