SG Hiscock & Company has appointed a new investment specialist who will be responsible for fund distribution across New South Wales and Queensland and a new business development executive - both from Macquarie Group.
Matthew Potter steps into the investment specialist position, based in Sydney. He has 30 years' experience in investments, most recently at Macquarie Group.
SG Hiscock's head of distribution Anthony Cochran said Potter will be an asset to the team.
"Matthew's ability to identify and act on opportunities that ultimately help clients achieve the best possible investment outcomes is fundamental to his hire and his experience in investment markets will be an asset to the team," Cochran said.

"More broadly, the appointment is a result of the increased interest from the market in the SGH strategies, and our sound investment performance over a sustained period of time."
During his 15 years of experience with Macquarie, Potter was responsible for the distribution of the Macquarie Professional Series suite of global equity funds and hedge funds across New South Wales.
Potter was a business development manager across listed equities, unlisted infrastructure, agriculture and private equity trusts.
Prior to joining Macquarie, Potter held business development positions at Platypus Asset Management.
Meanwhile, Aristi Kitsakis has been appointed business development executive in the funds distribution team at SG Hiscock.
Kitsakis will be responsible for assisting the distribution team in increasing sales and retention of SG Hiscock's funds by servicing clients and identifying new business opportunities.
Kitsakis also enjoyed a long career at Macquarie Group, spending 12 years in various roles including business development, communications and as an executive assistant.
"Like Matthew, Aristi's appointment is further evidence of the company's focus to build its funds under management via retail investment channels, with dealer groups and financial advisers," Cochran said.
"Her detailed knowledge and expertise in the retail financial services environment adds to the existing breadth and depth of our team."
