APP Securities has hired former Shaw and Partners senior research analyst David Fraser.

Street Talk understands Fraser, who started at APP on Monday, replaces Russell Wright who departed the stockbroking and advisory firm to join boutique EverBlu Capital. 

Four more junior APP colleagues also followed Wright to EverBlu.

Fraser was a senior analyst at Shaw and Partners until the end of 2016 and has also had stints at Nomura and UBS primarily covering logistics, transport, industrials, infrastructure and utilities.

APP is also said to have hired Steven Larkins as director in its investment banking team as it seeks to beef up in corporate finance. 

Larkins was most recently chief executive of resource firm High Peak Royalties and has more than 25 years experience in banking, according to LinkedIn.

That spans firms including JBWere, running equity solutions for Commonwealth Bank of Australia and a brief stint heading up equity capital Markets for Bell Potter.
