Coram adds to newly-formed Advisory Board

Coram Asset Management has hired former Matterley head Peter Geikie-Cobb, and Ben Yearsley, for it newly-created advisory board.

The board will provide guidance and advice to the firm and its three multi-manager investment funds run by James Sullivan. Coram also recently added a model portfolio service following the acquisition of Minerva Fund Management.

Both Mr Geikie-Cobb and Mr Yearsley have left roles in the last 18 months. The former was managing director at Charles Stanley's fund management business Matterley. However, he left in January 2016 after the closure of his fixed income fund the merger of Matterley into the wider business. He was previously a fund manager at Thames River Capital and Insight.

Mr Yearsley had co-founded venture capital trust specialist WealthClub but left an active role earlier this year.

Mr Sullivan, who co-founded Coram but later sold it to Guernsey-based fund house MitonOptimal International, said the duo had had long-term relationships with the firm.

He added: "With their complementary skill sets and collective experience in our market, we believe they will offer tremendous value."
