*The High Conviction Strategy Performance table above includes the performance of the Chester High Conviction Fund (from inception April 2017) and prior to that, the SGH Australian Plus Fund (from inception October 2013 to February 2017).
Both Funds are based on the same investment strategy, for the periods where the Funds were managed by Rob Tucker as Portfolio Manager during his tenure at SG Hiscock & Co, and then at Chester Asset Management.
As there is crossover in 2017, the return for this period combines the performance of the SGH Fund (8 months) and Chester Fund (2 months) and excludes the 2 months when the strategy was not in operation.
