Close Brothers Asset Management (CBMA) has appointed financial services veteran Alastair Wilson as its new Managing Director as it aims to enhance its offering across the UK.

Wilson brings more than 30 years’ financial services experience and joins CBAM’s base in the Scottish capital from Brooks Macdonald, where he was a founding member of the Edinburgh office in 2009.

Chief executive 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.”
