Close Brothers Asset Management (CBAM) has appointed Tim West as managing director in a move aimed at strengthening its growing high net worth client proposition, the company said in a note.
West joins CBAM from Rathbones, where he was a senior investment director for 22 years. While at Rathbones, West was responsible for managing investment portfolios for individuals, trusts and charities, and was a team leader in the firm's London office. He was also responsible for research in listed private equity and small company funds, as well as representing Rathbones on the Wealth Management Association (WMA) Indices Committee.
As CBAM's new managing director, West joins the firm's London West End office, where he will report directly to Andrew Hess, managing director, working alongside other recent hires to support the company's growth strategy through the further expansion and enhancement of its high net worth capability.
Martin Andrew, chief executive of Close Brothers Asset Management, said: "Tim's appointment means that we start the year as we mean to go on. Bringing a wealth of experience in the private client sector, he is an exceptional addition to our ever-growing team based in the West End office.
"The appointment of high calibre professionals, such as Tim, is key to delivering our strategic vision. I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow and enhance our high net worth proposition in 2020."
