Close has appointed Paul Chambers chief financial officer of its asset management division.
In a career stretching over twenty years, Chambers has worked for firms including Arthur Andersen, Lehman Brothers, PwC and Standard Chartered.
His appointment follows a number of new hires since September, as the business looks to strengthen its offering to clients, intermediaries and institutions.
Close CEO of asset management Martin Andrew says Chambers' experience of working across different business channels will aid the company's growth.
"Close is a growing company with an interesting, dynamic business proposition," says Chambers. "I am excited to join a company which not only has ambition but is well positioned to meet all the challenges that our industry faces in the decade to come."
