Investment Management firm GAM has appointed Rupert Cecil as client director in its managed portfolios team in London.
Cecil joins from Credit Suisse Private Bank where he has worked since 2007 as a private client adviser with the UK finance market professional team.
Prior to this he was a director at Kleinwort Benson for six years and head of UK equities and international portfolios.
His career in financial services has spanned nearly 20 years working in a number of roles at Cazenove, Deutsche Asset Management, Henderson Administration and British and Commonwealth Merchant Bank.
Graham Wainer, group head of private clients and portfolio management for GAM, says: "We are delighted that Rupert has joined our private client team in London and I am sure he will make an outstanding contribution. He has extensive experience of developing a strong and diverse client base, coupled with an outstanding knowledge of multi asset class solutions within an open architecture platform and creation of bespoke results for clients."
GAM has been progressively strengthening its UK private client business with two additional appointments earlier this year of Jonathan Colchester as head of private clients, UK, and James Lindsay-Fynn as portfolio manager.
