About Bob Brown

Born in Hastings in 1947, Bob Brown had worked as a fund manager for 20 years when he decided to use his experience to form his own investment group, R.C. Brown Investment Management PLC. Brown graduated from Durham University with a combined degree in Politics, Economics and Psychology. He started out in 1969 with Philips & Drew and was an important member of the team that successfully built up the group's investment business in the 1970s. Brown combines his role of chairman of the group with the management of the Marlborough Quantock UK Growth fund and Marlborough Ethical fund, which he manages on behalf of Marlborough Fund Managers. Brown is a stockpicker who looks to fill his portfolios with companies with good management, strong balance sheets and organic growth. He prefers to use his 33 years' of experience, rather than complex computer models, to analyse markets and companies.
