Coram AM adds Yearsley and Geikie-Cobb to adviser board

Coram, a subsidiary of MitonOptimal, announced the new board on Monday and said its members would advise on a number of “industry related matters” affecting its three multi-asset funds.

It follows news last week of Coram’s acquisition of Minerva Fund Managers and the introduction of its first model portfolio service.

Yearsley, currently a director of IFA firm Shore Financial Planning, announced his resignation from the investment service the Wealth Club in April, explaining he intended to focus more on his non-executive roles elsewhere with opportunities “in the pipeline”.

He said: “I have long admired James and what Coram represents and am pleased to come on board at this exciting time for the business.”

Geikie-Cobb, whose career in asset management stretches back to 1985, said he was looking forward to joining the firm and its team.

He was previously managing director at Matterley, the fund management division of Charles Stanley, from 2015 to 2016, and was a fund manager at Thames River Capital LLP from 2003 to 2014.

Coram director James Sullivan said: “We are grateful to Ben and Peter for accepting our invitation to join the Coram Advisory Board and crystallise our long term relationships. 

“With their complementary skill sets and collective experience in our market, we believe they will offer tremendous value.”
