Our mission is to lead the way in active management as a trusted firm with superior fund knowledge, service quality, product understanding and added value for investors.


The Marlborough story


Marlborough has been running funds for 30 years and the expertise and experience of our team have established us as a leader in the world of active management.

We remain sharply focused on our overriding objective, which is to add value for our investors, and because we remain privately owned we can concentrate on this without distraction.

The quality of our award-winning fund managers – who invest in a range of asset classes including UK and overseas equities, fixed interest and funds of funds – is central to what we do.

Our equity and bond managers invest in companies, rather than trading for short-term gains. They take the time to conduct their own research, understand the businesses and, if their demanding criteria are met, they will then invest with a long-term view.

This focus on the long term is part of Marlborough’s DNA. Our core team have worked together for many years, building up an in-depth knowledge of the running of funds.

Our in-house specialists handle every aspect of the Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) and fund administration functions for all of our funds, which means we have a detailed ‘under the bonnet’ understanding of our products.

We also place a high-value on quality service, while ensuring that the pricing of our funds remains keenly competitive.

We believe that through high quality active management combined with superior fund knowledge, service quality and product understanding we can add the greatest possible value for our investors – and that by doing this, we repay the trust those investors place in us.
