Sigma has been awarded an Australian equities investment mandate, which will see the industry fund invest in the firm’s high conviction broad cap value strategy.
“We are delighted to have been awarded an active mandate by an industry super fund,” Sigma founder and director Heath Behncke said.
“At a time where passive investing is increasing we believe accessing capacity in active, high conviction strategies is a compelling opportunity in the current environment.”
Sigma’s investment strategy is based on increasing active risk in a portfolio, reducing portfolio redundancy and managing small cap beta risk, a statement issued by the firm said.
Small caps are only considered by the firm when they offer significant risk-adjusted upside relative to the ASX 300, the statement said.
