Bennelong expands its institutional sales team

6 March 2017

Bennelong is pleased to announce the newest addition to their institutional team, Matthew Briggs. Matthew joins from Citibank after Ryan Durance, who previously headed up Bennelong’s institutional team was promoted to oversee the distribution arm of BennBridge, Bennelong’s London office. Matthew Briggs has been appointed to the role of Director, Institutional Sales, reporting directly to Andrew Aitken, Head of Distribution.

Matthew joins Bennelong from Citigroup where he spent 11 years, most recently in Prime Finance.

Andrew Aitken, who manages the broader distribution function of the group said, “it’s pleasing to see the company expand at the rate it has been. Since July last year, there have been nine hires to support business growth. With the addition of three new boutiques in under 18 months, bringing our total asset management teams to seven, Matthew joining the institutional sales team will allow Bennelong to greater prioritise growth in the institutional market in the medium term. 

“It’s such an exciting time at Bennelong as we look to extend the local success story offshore, with the opening of BennBridge in the UK,” said Andrew.

Matthew will be based in the Sydney office and joined the team on 6 March.
