Investment consultant Frontier Advisors has appointed a senior consultant to lead the firm's infrastructure research.
Peter Siapikoudis will join Frontier Advisors in March 2016 to head up the infrastructure research team.
Mr Siapikoudis has 20 years of industry experience, having served as chief executive of the The Infrastructure Fund and Hastings Hancock International Timberland Fund at Hastings Funds Management.
Most recently, he headed up Hasting's mandates business platform.
Before joining Hastings in 2008, Mr Siapikoudis spent eight years managing UniSuper's infrastructure investment portfolio and five years with William M Mercer.
Frontier chief executive Damian Moloney said Mr Siapikoudis has the ability to consider the perspective of all parties involved in infrastructure deals.
"Frontier has been advising clients in the infrastructure space for over two decades and many of our clients, who have benefited from being early movers in the space, have built sophisticated infrastructure portfolios and continue to explore new ideas and approaches to the sector," Mr Moloney said.
"I am sure they will value Peter’s collaboration with their investment teams, and his extensive knowledge and experience.
"For the Frontier client base generally, Peter will be able to deliver tailored advice and help identify opportunities to invest in an increasingly important sector," he said.
