The fund manager has added a seasoned investment strategist to its executive team.

SG Hiscock & Company has announced the appointment of Robert Hogg as group chief investment officer (CIO) and head of SGH individual portfolios, effective 28 February.

He will succeed Stephen Hiscock, who will continue as executive chairman of the group.

Mr Hogg joins the firm from UniSuper where he worked for over seven years, most recently as head of fixed interest and macro research, and prior to that as head of global equity strategies and quant methods.

Before this, he spent eight years at Frontier Advisors as a senior consultant and head of capital markets and asset allocation.

Mr Hogg has also held economic and investment management roles with Commonwealth Investment Management and Colonial First State Asset Management.

In his new capacity, he will be based in Melbourne and will report to chief executive Giles Croker.

In a statement on Wednesday, SG Hiscock said that Mr Hogg’s appointment comes during a period of considerable growth for the company.

“In this role, Rob will provide support to the investment teams, including the SGH Individual Portfolio’s investment team, and will look for new growth opportunities that will strengthen our capabilities and investment offering,” Mr Hiscock said.

“Rob’s appointment is a strategic one for us. He will be an extraordinary asset to our company. His 30-plus year career spans many different areas in financial services, and his knowledge and experience will be an asset to our investment team, adding to the strength of our business and the investment solutions we offer our clients.

“As we head into 2024, we are continuing to invest strongly in the organisation through the quality of our talent.”

SG Hiscock’s goal, he concluded, is to bring a high level of quality investment solutions and service to its clients.
