Close Brothers Asset Management opens new Chester office

Close Brothers Asset Management (CBAM) has opened a new office in Chester as it expands its high net worth. This office complements the firm's existing North West operations in Manchester and Northwich.

The new location in the heart of Chester will be home to bespoke investment managers, financial planners and their client support teams, offering space for team expansion and excellent client facilities. The office can be found at Halladale House in Chester Business Park.

CBAM’s two recently appointed Managing Directors, Helen Gerrard and Nick Jackson, will be based at the new office, and will be joined by new hire Ed Brown, Assistant Investment Manager. Between them, Helen and Nick have over fifty years of experience providing investment management services in the North West and beyond. At CBAM, Helen and Nick will play key roles in supporting the continued growth of the Bespoke investment management service, working closely with CBAM’s financial planners, professional intermediaries and other private client advisers in the region.
Following a recent succession of senior hires across both investment management and business development, the addition of the Chester office will continue to expand on the company’s ambition to strengthen and enhance its services to HNW individuals in the region.
Martin Andrew, Chief Executive of Close Brothers Asset Management, says: “As CBAM’s HNW offering continues to go from strength to strength, we’re excited to bolster the proposition in the North West with our new Chester office. The expansion will ensure that our clients in the region continue to receive a high quality service, as well as provide us with another platform from which to grow our business.
“The timely addition of Nick, Helen and Ed ensures that our team has a vast amount of experience and knowledge as we evolve and enhance our services in the region for new and existing clients.”
