Former Thames River and Barings manager Peter Geikie-Cobb and fund research specialist Ben Yearsley have joined the advisory board of Coram Asset Management.
The advisory board is a collection of individuals who will offer specific knowledge and expertise to the firm on industry-related matters.
Coram, which is part of the MitonOptimal Group, was set up in 2014 by former Miton manager James Sullivan and runs three multi-asset funds.
Geikie-Cobb has worked in asset management since 1985 with a focus on fixed income funds at firms such as Barings and Insight Investment.
Between 2003 and 2014, he was a partner and fund manager at Thames River Capital with Paul Thursby before leaving to join Matterley where he was managing director and manager of the Bond Opportunities fund until 2016.
Yearsley is director of IFA firm Shore Financial Planning and previously spent 15 years working on fund research at Hargreaves Lansdown and as head of research at Charles Stanley Direct.
He also co-founded investment service Wealth Club before leaving earlier this year.
Sullivan, director at Coram, 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."
