SG Hiscock’s SGH ICE fund has been added to the Asgard platform. The fund, which was launched in 2006, has $200 million in funds under management and is distributed by Equity Trustees.

SGH ICE typically invests in mid-to-small cap industrial franchise companies listed on the ASX that deliver robust earnings growth.

Callum Burns, portfolio manager, said that the addition reflects growing interest in, and support for, funds that look outside the mainstream ASX100 for Australian equities investments and who adopt the franchise investing style.

“We believe that the fund is well placed to perform in a variety of market conditions and offers a unique way to gain exposure to a truly diverse portfolio of quality companies with growing franchises.”

Demand for the addition also came off the back of Lonsec upgrading its rating for the SGH ICE Fund to ‘Highly Recommended’ earlier this year. In its report, Lonsec said that the strengths of the Fund include Portfolio Manager Callum Burns, who “is a high-calibre investment professional.  As architect of the strategy, he has significant tie-in to the investment philosophy”.  The fund also won both industry awards for Small Companies Fund manager of the year awards this year.
