The Active Share supports our active investment approach, exploring the less obvious and providing a unique array of perspective from both inside William Blair and with external thought leaders. We are eager to offer our audiences a different type of investment podcast.
Hugo Scott-Gall is co-director of research for the global equity team. He is also a thematic strategist. He is responsible for researching longer-term trends affecting corporate performance and developing systematic solutions for broad investment challenges. Before joining William Blair in 2018, Hugo was a managing director and head of the thematic research team at Goldman Sachs that investigated thematic changes, analyzed their effects across industries, and sought to identify long-term structurally advantaged companies. He produced Fortnightly Thoughts, a publication offering thematic insights, and GS Sustain, a long-term-focused publication that sought to identify best-in-breed companies. He also oversaw GS Dataworks, a team that used alternative data to augment fundamental research.

Before Goldman Sachs, he was an equity research analyst at Fidelity Investments.
