Sam Sicilia – Seizing on a Long Time Horizon at HostPlus (EP.103)

Sam Sicilia – Seizing on a Long Time Horizon at HostPlus (EP.103)

Sam Sicilia is the Chief Investment Officer of HostPlus, Australia’s AUZ 37 billion ($25B USD) Superannuation Fund.  Sam joined HostPlus in 2008 after a storied career in academia and the finance industry stretching back to the early 1990s. During that time, he held senior roles, both in Australia and internationally, consulting at Russell Investments, managing assets at Bank of Ireland, and consulting with Frontier Investment Consulting and Towers Perrin.

Our conversation starts with Sam’s mathematics training and turns to his work over the last decade at HostPlus, covering the Fund’s long time horizon, his strategy to take advantage of that horizon, infrastructure investing for downside protection, private equity, venture capital in Australia, public equity focusing on people, hedge funds as a liquidity buffer, and working with a Board.
