SG Hiscock & Company Partners with US Small Cap Manager EAM Global Investors
High conviction fund manager SG Hiscock & Company Limited (SGH) is partnering with EAM Global Investors LLC (EAM) to offer an exclusive global small cap strategy to the Australian market.
Under the arrangement, EAM will join SGH’s Partnership Program alongside other global funds management businesses including Morgan Stanley Investment Management (Australia) Pty Ltd and LaSalle Investment Management Securities LLC. SGH and abrdn PLC have also entered into a strategic partnership whereby SGH has become the wholesale distribution partner for abrdn’s international funds in the Australian market.
EAM is a San Diego based fund manager founded in 2007 which manages a range of strategies including Global Opportunities, a global small cap strategy established in 2017. EAM has a team-driven approach across all its investment strategies, utilising a systematic approach combined with stock selection, tailored risk management and efficient implementation to deliver outcomes for clients.
According to SGH executive chair and chief investment officer, Stephen Hiscock, the addition of EAM is a natural complement to the existing suite of Partnership Program asset managers.
“The global small cap market is a fascinating space in this economic environment, and EAM is a well-respected fund manager with a proven track record of delivering returns for investors.
“Under the Program, we’re able to provide Australian investors with access to investment opportunities across global equities and global real estate investment trusts, and now with EAM, global small caps.
“The Partnership Program is well established in the local market, and EAM sees value in our distribution team acting as ambassadors for its product and strategies,” Hiscock said.
EAM uses a systematic investment approach called Informed Momentum®, the firm’s time-tested philosophy invests in companies with positive momentum and adds rationale and risk management to deliver alpha for clients.
EAM chief investment officer, Travis Prentice, said: “SG Hiscock & Company has a strong investment network in the Australian market, and it has a proven ability to effectively deliver products and strategies on behalf of global managers.
“Our firm has existing institutional client relationships in Australia and we are thrilled our capabilities will now also be available to the adviser market. The distribution team at SG Hiscock comes highly regarded, and we’re excited to tap into their expertise and relationships with domestic adviser groups,” Prentice added.
