Nicholas Cooling was born in Liverpool in 1964 and was educated at Monmouth School. After graduating from Portsmouth University in 1985 with a BA (Hons) degree in geography, Nicholas joined Lloyds Life Assurance Limited in Peterborough. In 1991 Nicholas joined, as a fund manager, the asset management company which later became Marlborough Investment Management Limited. He was responsible for a total re-organisation of its investment processes, the positive results of which formed the platform for significant expansion of the business. He was appointed investment director of Marlborough Fund Managers Limited during 1998. On a day-to-day basis Nicholas, together with colleagues Gurjit Soggi and Raj Manon, is responsible for the management of Marlborough’s three risk graded Fund of Funds products. He is the front line manager for the Marlborough Balanced Fund.

Rajesh Manon

Gurjit Soggi

Gurjit Soggi was born in Derby in 1973. He attended the University of the West of England, achieving a BA (Hons) in Financial Services. Whilst at university he developed a keen interest in the philosophy, process and general methodology of fund management. Gurjit joined Marlborough during 1996. He worked within the investment team from day one, initially analysing unit trusts and OEICs, and working closely with the investment director Nicholas Cooling. His pragmatic and research driven investment style has given him performance to be proud of, especially in his Cautious Fund which launched him into the media spotlight.

Objective

The Marlborough Balanced Fund aims to provide medium to long term capital growth on a medium risk basis. The fund will invest primarily in the units/shares of collective investment schemes (which invest in shares of companies and fixed interest securities, both in the UK and internationally) and transferable securities on a global basis. The fund may also invest in, but is not limited to, government and public securities, cash and near cash and deposits. The fund may invest in derivatives and forward transactions for the reduction of risk or costs, or the generation of additional capital or income with an acceptably low level of risk.
