Non-aligned financial planning firm Koda Capital has appointed a former Morgan Stanley Private Wealth executive to its adviser team.
Mark Pollasky will join Macquarie Bank’s Charles Moore and Simon Duckett in Koda Capital's team of advisers.
Mr Pollasky joins the firm after 14 years with Morgan Stanley in the role of senior vice president of wealth management.
Mr Moore joins Koda after spending 10 years as a senior investment adviser at Macquarie Bank, while Mr Duckett held positions with Macquarie, Hartleys, Bankers Trust and Banque National de Paris.
Commenting on the appointments, Koda Capital chief executive Paul Heath said Mr Duckett, Mr Moore and Mr Pollasky have “unique skills” that will “complement” Koda's growing team of advisers.
“Koda’s unique value proposition, built around independence and a partnership culture, is generating strong interest among advisers and clients who are seeking alternatives to existing wealth management models,” Mr Heath said.
