About the Role

Close Asset Management (UK) Limited (“CBAM”) wishes to appoint a non-executive director (NED) with extensive asset management experience in an FCA regulated business to the existing CBAM fund operator board.

The main fund range comprises thirteen multi-asset class, risk targeted funds launched in early 2010 and now with asset under management in excess of £4bn.  The funds are UCITS unit trusts and are vanilla in nature.  In addition, there are three standalone funds with combined assets of around £75m; these are vanilla funds and are structured as a NURS OEIC, a UCITS unit trust and a UCITS OEIC.

The board of CBAM expects the newly appointed NED to assist in ensuring that the statutory and governance duties of the organisation are discharged effectively; to help instil a culture of continual improvement; and to act in the best interests of the fund shareholders and unitholders. In particular, the NED will be responsible for assisting the board develop the value assessment report for the funds, as described in PS 18/8.
