Melbourne-based asset manager SG Hiscock & Company has filled a newly created role of key account manager.
Rebecca Collins has taken the role, where she will be responsible for further developing channel opportunities across Australian equities and property securities.
She will also be accountable for developing channel opportunities in global equities and property securities through the company’s partnership program with Morgan Stanley Investment Management and LaSelle Investment Management Securities.
Ms Collins will report to SG Hiscock & Company head of distribution Anthony Cochran.
Mr Cochran said the appointment reflects strong investor demand as well as the need to broaden distribution lines, primarily through national dealer groups, model portfolio inclusion and managed accounts.
“Rebecca will be actively engaging with senior research, consulting and management personnel within our existing and prospective distributor network,” he said.
“The current trading environment gives rise to pursuing new distribution avenues, and Rebecca’s skills and experience will help the business achieve this objective.”
Ms Collins has worked in financial services for two decades across marketing and relationship management roles. She has previously worked with MLC Asset Management, NAB Asset Management and NAB Wealth Distribution, Ellerston Capital, UBS Wealth Management and Macquarie Bank.
