As The Singularity Group passes its 5th year anniversary, we are making changes to management to reflect our continuing developments to best capture global innovations across equity markets.
To that end, Pierre Guillier will become Group CIO from November 24, 2022, bringing his deep insights and detailed analysis to the core innovation screening and portfolio construction process.
Pierre enriches TSG's investment process of innovation screening and portfolio construction with his expertise and experience in engineering as well as data management and -analyses. He brings in-depth professional and technical knowledge in the areas of equity investing, fund research, risk management, and performance measurement.
Like our investment approach, the role of CIO at TSG is unconventional and stands apart from its traditional understanding in the finance industry. Our rule-based innovation scoring and investment methodology reduces the influence of single individuals in stock selection, and relies instead on a unique internal research process which is firmly rooted in the intellectual prowess of the Singularity Think Tank – a community of over 30 innovation thought leaders, headed by our Director of Research, Shiko Ben-Menahem, PhD. TSG's CIO and Director of Research collaborate closely to channel the Think Tank's innovation expertise into our research and investment strategy.
Gregory Hung, who has played an instrumental role in building our robust core processes and overall portfolio management structure will step down as CIO, having positioned the role effectively for the current transition to Pierre Guillier. Having made these critical contributions to our development, please join us in wishing Greg well in his pursuit of new interests outside the company, while remaining a shareholder of the group.
We wish everyone the best in their new roles.
