Our Profile and Capabilities
SICOM has a long history of managing funds of different investment strategies, across many market cycles. The total Asset Under Management at Group level, has grown steadily over the years, and stood at MUR 35 billion as at 30th June 2012.
Over the years, SICOM has acquired and consolidated its investment capabilities by managing various investment Funds (Pension Fund, Life Fund, Shareholders’ Fund, General Insurance Fund, Overseas Funds, Unit Trusts, etc), which altogether have adopted different investment strategies to meet their respective risk and return objectives.
SICOM benefits from a stable and experienced management team, which ensures the smooth functioning of the investment management function within the organisation. The portfolio management team, which oversees the day-to-day management of the various portfolios, is supported by a strong team of experienced investment professionals, who have been working together for several years.
The investment philosophy focuses on achieving consistent above average returns for each of the portfolios under management over the medium to long-term. Diversifying each portfolio across a broad spectrum of permissible asset classes and strategies, whilst making sure that the risk and return objectives of each portfolio are met, is core to our investment philosophy. The team proactively looks out for attractive investment opportunities within each asset class, in order to add alpha to the portfolios’ return over time. Through diligent application of our process we attempt to minimise the drawdown in portfolios, and capture as much of the upside as possible in the different economic cycles.
At SICOM, it is strongly believed that risk management is paramount to the long-term success of any investment activity. As such, risk management is an integrated part of the investment management process.
