Award winning Australian and Global Equity specialists, Hyperion Asset Management, was our guest speaker at our ‘Meet the Manager’ event this year.
Hyperion’s flagship strategy, the Hyperion Australian Growth Companies Fund, features prominently in the Profile Portfolios and plays a key role in preserving capital during market drawdowns whilst also achieving attractive returns significantly above the relevant benchmarks (after fees) over the long term. To date it has delivered chart topping results backed by a disciplined investment process, a clear philosophy, and a motivated team of high quality investment professionals. Profile’s ‘Meet the Manager’ event offers all clients invested in the Profile Portfolios the opportunity to hear firsthand from one of the best equity managers in the country.
Hyperion’s interesting topic for this educational event was ‘Structural growth themes that will drive performance in a low growth & increasingly disrupted world’ – a fascinating presentation.
