Hess (pictured), who was most recently an investment director at Rathbones, has over 30 years’ experience managing funds for private clients and will be a part of CBAM’s bespoke investment management service for wealthy individuals based out of London.
Martin Andrew, chief executive of CBAM, said 2018 represented a period of growth for the bespoke investment service with the expansion of the team and the opening of a West End office, where Hess will be based.
Last year, Hugh Adlington, Tim Eliot-Cohen and Oliver Harvey were appointed to the London office and Andrew Mackintosh-Walker and John Henderson joined the Scotland team.
