Meet Our Team

Brian Phillips

Head of Fixed Income and Equities Technology

What’s your role at Barrenjoey?

I look after Barrenjoey’s Trading, Research, and Risk Technology functions. I joined on 14th January 2020 when all we had was a blank sheet of paper(literally!), Microsoft Office, and a shared internet connection between a handful of people.

What did you do before joining Barrenjoey?

I have 30 years’ experience working for financial institutions across Australia, Europe, North America and Asia including Macquarie Bank, Deutsche Bank, Lehman Brothers and Fidelity Investments. Prior to joining Barrenjoey I was looking after a central risk technology function at Macquarie and before that spent 15 years at Deutsche Bank looking after Fixed Income and Equities technology areas for Australia and New Zealand. In my previous roles I have held senior regional and global technology positions mainly focusing on medium to large scale change programs. I have a degree in engineering.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I pretend to keep fit by owning a cycle that gets used one a month, a gym membership that gets used once a quarter and a set of tennis and squash rackets that haven’t seen daylight since 2005. On weekends, you’ll find me ferrying my teenage kids around Sydney and walking two very noisy dogs who seem to take a very vocal interest in most of my Teams conference calls.
