Close Brothers Asset Management (CBAM) has named Alastair Wilson as the managing director for its Edinburgh office.

The move is aimed at supporting the firm’s HNW investment management capability.

Wilson joins from Brooks Macdonald, where he worked for a decade.

He was an investment management director at Brooks Macdonald and a founding member of the firm’s Edinburgh office.

In a financial career of over 30 years, he also worked as a senior investment director at Adam & Co for 15 years and was part of its asset allocation committee.

CBAM CEO Martin Andrew 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.”

CBAM has made several hires for its Edinburgh office in recent times. These include the appointments of Christopher Godfrey-Faussett, Andrew Mackintosh-Walker, as well as John Henderson.
