Online trading platform Bell Direct has nabbed two “high-calibre” talents from CommSec One as it looks to expand its own high-value client offering.
Ryan Phillips and Lewis Hsu have both been appointed to Bell Directs Advantage service. Based in Sydney, Mr Philips and Mr Hsu will be responsible for “enhancing the trading experience” of Bell Direct’s growing number of sophisticated and self-directed active investors and supporting them in their trading activities.
“Ryan and Lewis are both well positioned to service this group of experienced traders wanting the support of a dedicated trading desk,” said Tim Sparks, Bell Direct head of distribution and marketing.
“Their specialised knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we continue to respond to evolving client needs in the wake of rapidly changing market dynamics.”
Mr Philips has more than two decades’ experience in financial services, including 10 years as executive manager for CommSec One – the broker’s high-value client desk. Most recently he held the role of CommSec’s executive manager for broking and markets. Mr Hsu also joins from CommSec One, where he was senior relationship manager, and has over 15 years’ experience.
“We are pleased to welcome such a high calibre of talent which adds further bench strength to the premium grade service Bell Direct active investors want and need,” said Bell Direct chief executive Arnie Selvarajah.
Mr Phillips and Mr Hsu commence their roles on 26 October.
