Close Brothers Asset Management has appointed Alastair Wilson as managing diector based in its Edinburgh office, as part of supporting growth in its high net worth investment management capabilities.
Wilson (pictured above) has joined from Brooks Macdonald, where he was a founding member of its Edinburgh office. Before that he spent 15 years as a senior investment director at Adam & Co, where he was a member of the Asset Allocation Committee.
CBAM appointed managing director Christopher Godfrey-Faussett to its Scotland office earlier this year, following the hires of Andrew Mackintosh-Walker and John Henderson last year. Building the Scotland office forms part of a broader strategy to expand the high net worth service across the UK.
Martin Andrew, chief executive of Close Brothers Asset Management, said: "Our high net worth proposition is going from strength to strength, and Alastair's appointment is further evidence of the merit of our offering as we continue to attract the highest calibre of investment professionals. The appointment of select, high quality individuals is central to the expansion of our Scotland office, which in turn is a crucial element of our growth plans across the UK. Alastair brings with him tremendous pedigree and expertise; he will support the team in continuing to deliver excellence to our expanding Scottish client base."
