The Marlborough story
The Marlborough Group’s story began in 1985 when Marlborough Investment Management started providing financial advice to clients and investing money on their behalf.
Today the group has over £14 billion of assets under management (October 2021) and looks after the investments of more than 200,000 private, corporate and institutional clients. Consistent growth has been built on a reputation for investment excellence and our commitment to working in partnership with advisers to help them build their businesses and better serve their clients.
The group remains resolutely privately owned, which means our objectives are firmly aligned with those of our investors. This means we can focus on delivering exceptional returns without distraction.
