The board of Martin Currie Asia Unconstrained Trust has appointed Craig Cleland as a Non-Executive Director of the Company.

Cleland is currently Head of Corporate Development, Investment Trusts at CQS (UK) LLP, the multi-strategy, credit-focussed asset management firm, and was recently appointed as a non-executive director on BlackRock Latin American Investment Trust PLC. Prior to this he was at JPMorgan Asset Management (UK) Limited, latterly as Managing Director, and led their technical groups in the investment trust business. Before this he was a Director and Senior Company Secretary at Fleming Investment Trust Management Limited, transferring to JPMorgan following the acquisition of Robert Fleming Holdings Limited.
Longstanding Non-Executive Director Peter Edwards is to retire from the board on 6 February 2019, having been appointed in 2007.
Harry Wells, Chairman, Martin Currie Asia Unconstrained Trust, says: “We are in the process of refreshing the Board. Peter Edwards is stepping down as a Director after nearly 12 years of service. I would like this opportunity to thank Peter for his valuable contribution to the Company, wise counsel and sagacious advice over that period.
“We appointed Craig Cleland to the Board on 7 January 2019 and in welcoming him I am confident that he will make a significant contribution to the Company, given his considerable knowledge and experience of the investment trust industry.”
Cleland says: “The Asia Long-Term Unconstrained (ALTU) investment strategy is highly distinctive – and the company offers a number of benefits to investors looking for income and growth from the Asian region. I am delighted to have been appointed to the board and look forward to representing shareholders’ interests.”
