CAIM appoints Alan Cubbon as Head of Quantitative Strategies, Risk and Analytics

23.03.2021

Crown Agents Investment Management (CAIM) announces the appointment of industry veteran Alan Cubbon as Head of Quantitative Strategies, Risk and Analytics (QRA), to lead and further strengthen CAIM’s Risk and Performance division.

Alan Cubbon brings over 35 years of quantitative finance and risk management experience to CAIM, and will play a pivotal role in bolstering the firm’s efforts in investment solutions, asset allocation and advisory and product development for its central bank network and other institutional clients.

After 26 years at J.P Morgan, Alan’s experience of working on both buy and sell sides gives him unparalleled insight into some of the risk-related concerns that CAIM’s client base are facing. As Investment Director for fixed income at JP Morgan Asset Management, Alan was responsible for overseeing the risk management process for portfolios managed in London. At J.P. Morgan Securities, he headed a team split between London and New York, and was principal developer of a US Treasury trading system for a key central bank client – a tool that proved pivotal to the institution’s activities. Alan has worked with central bank and other official institution clients in CAIM’s focus markets, as well as a broad range of other institutional clients.

He was also Founding Partner and Head of Research at Trinity CapM, where he was responsible for the development and running of asset allocation and risk management software to underpin Trinity’s process of forecasting and investment in fixed income markets. From 2016 to 2020, Alan joined FTSE Russell as Managing Director.

Roberts Grava, CEO of Crown Agents Investment Management, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Alan at such a key moment for CAIM, and have every confidence that his extensive experience in risk management and quantitative research will strengthen our business as we move CAIM on into its next exciting stage. I am confident that Alan’s personal motivation and work ethic will be an attribute to our newly created QRA team and undoubtedly contribute towards our longer-term plans to strengthen our offering.”

Alan adds: “I’m thrilled to be joining CAIM at such an exciting juncture in the firm’s growth trajectory. I look forward to working with the strong leadership team, including the newly-appointed CEO, Roberts Grava, and leveraging my expertise to deliver on CAIM’s strategic growth objectives. I am sure it will be a fruitful year ahead.”
