Seasoned Executive is appointed CEO of leading Fintech Macrovue
AMP-backed fintech Macrovue is pleased to announce today it has appointed Rod Bristow as CEO.
Rod is a former Chief Operating Officer and alternate Managing Director of Australia’s largest online stockbroker CommSec. Most recently he was Managing Director and CEO of Infocus Wealth Management – a national financial advice, asset management and technology group. In these roles, Rod led large teams to drive substantial growth organically and via mergers and acquisitions.
Macrovue will retain the expertise and capability of Founder Dr Sid Sahgal, who will move into the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer. This strategic move will provide substantial depth of capability for Macrovue to deliver on its vision of providing Australians with exposure to global investment opportunities and a simplified way to invest in the world’s most successful companies and leading sectors.
Macrovue Chairman Brendan Foley said “Sid and his team have done an incredible job in rapidly growing Macrovue in our three key target markets of SMSF trustees, retail investors, and financial advisers. We are embarking on an exciting growth phase of the business and are looking forward to benefiting from Rod’s expertise to assist with the next stage of Macrovue’s evolution. To help with this growth phase, we will be embarking on a Series A capital raising round to scale the business and leverage the successes we have seen to date”.
Macrovue has recently integrated with the SuperConcepts Connected Services SMSF investment product marketplace, providing SMSF trustees direct access to Macrovue’s global equities investment solution. Macrovue is also working closely with several large financial advice firms to provide advisers with affordable access to global equities, ETFs, and Macrovue’s model portfolios.
