SG Hiscock & Company has appointed Robert Hogg as group chief investment officer (CIO) and head of individual portfolios, commencing 28 February 2023.

In this role, Hogg will report to chief executive, Giles Croker, and be based in Melbourne. 

He will support the firm’s investment teams, including the SGH Individual Portfolio’s investment team, and has been tasked with looking for new growth opportunities. 

Hogg brings over three decades of experience to the role and takes the reins from Stephen Hiscock, who will continue as executive chairman of SG Hiscock Group.

“Rob’s appointment is a strategic one for us. He will be an extraordinary asset to our company,” Hiscock said. 

“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.”

He added: “As we head into 2024, we are continuing to invest strongly in the organisation through the quality of our talent. Our goal is to bring a high level of quality investment solutions and service to our clients.” 

Prior to joining the Australian fund manager, Hogg spent over seven years at UniSuper, where he was the head of global equity strategies and quant methods and most recently the head of fixed interest and macro research.

His experience includes eight years as a senior consultant and head of capital markets and asset allocation at Frontier Advisors, and over a decade as an equities strategist at Colonial First State Asset Management. 

Additionally, Hogg previously served as head of global fixed interest in Commonwealth Bank’s fund management division.

In the first half of 2023, SG Hiscock had announced changes to the abrdn Australian funds following the announcement of a strategic partnership between the two firms. This would see SG Hiscock become abrdn’s wholesale distribution partner in Australia and distribute the firm’s international funds to the Australian market.

SG Hiscock now offers over 20 different strategies across Australian and global equities, REITs and income.
