Fixed income provider FIIG Securities has appointed a former JB Were financial advice executive to the newly created position of head of personal and intermediary clients.
Grant McCorquodale, former head of advice at NAB subsidiary JB Were, has been appointed to the role, which includes responsibility for financial planner relationships.
FIIG chief executive Mark Paton said Mr McCorquodale’s appointment would “significantly strengthen” the client focus of its executive leadership team.
“[Mr McCorquodale] has had extensive experience in sales leadership roles in private and intermediary type businesses, which makes him an ideal fit for this new position,” Mr Paton said.
“We look forward to working with [Mr McCorquodale] as we seek to boost our position in the intermediary and family office markets, both areas where Grant has built a strong profile and network,” he said.
Mr McCorquodale has also worked as head of Macquarie Private Bank and head of sales for the Macquarie Cash Management Trust.
“He has strong experience of the wealth management and investment needs of Australians and SMSF trustees in particular and worked in the strategy teams at both CBA and NAB to develop their group SMSF strategies,” a statement from FIIG said.
“Mr McCorquodale has [also] previously practiced as an investment adviser to some of Australia’s largest families and [not-for-profit] organisations,” FIIG said.
