Meet our team

Investment team

At Hyperion, the collaborative, rigorous approach of our investment team focuses on building sustainable long term returns for our clients. We value expertise over hierarchy and each member of our investment team takes personal ownership of our investment process, which increases their commitment to results.

A deep understanding of each company ensures that we place more weight on our independent research than on management’s point of view. To promote our client-centric model, each member of our investment team has substantial capital invested in Hyperion’s products. In fact, staff are not permitted to invest in products outside of Hyperion so our clients can be confident that the investment team’s goals are aligned with their interests.
