LaSalle and SGH win 2023 Zenith Fund Award
Global real estate securities firm LaSalle Investment Management (LaSalle) in partnership with Australian fund manager SG Hiscock and Company (SGH), have won the Global Real Estate Investment award for their SGH LaSalle Concentrated Global Property Fund, at the 2023 Zenith Fund Awards.
The fund is distributed exclusively in Australia by SGH. The fund is an actively managed portfolio that invests primarily in global real estate investment trusts (GREITs) and real estate operating companies (REOCs). The fund seeks to provide total return through long-term capital appreciation and rental income.
Chief investment officer at LaSalle and lead portfolio manager for the fund, Matt Sgrizzi, said the win reflects the fund’s strong performance over the long term, and its investment process which is a testament to the calibre of the investment team.
“We’re fortunate to have a highly credentialed team which gives us the ability to identify good opportunities in the market and capitalise on assets with untapped potential.
“Our approach gives investors access to the benefits of global diversification given an investible universe spanning both Australian and international securities.
“Winning this accolade acknowledges both the skills and expertise of our investment, together with a strong distribution network made possible through our partnership with SGH,” said Mr Sgrizzi.
The 2023 Zenith Fund Awards recognise and encourage excellence in funds management across all asset classes and disciplines. The awards aim to raise the standard of funds management in the local market, to the benefit of institutional, wholesale and retail investors.
