Nicola Horlick Chief Executive Derby St Films
Nicola has been a leading fund manager in the City of London for over twenty-eight years.
During that time, she has set up and managed a number of investment businesses.

Nicola was educated at Balliol College, Oxford and began her career in the City in 1983 when she joined SG Warburg, which was then one of the leading merchant banks. She worked in the investment department, which eventually became Mercury Asset Management, and was appointed a director in 1989. In 1991, she moved to Morgan Grenfell Asset Management (the UK institutional and private-client business) in 1992. During her time in this role, assets under management increased from £4 billion to £22.5 billion. In 1997, Nicola set up SG Asset Management (UK) for the French Bank Société Générale with Keith Percy, with whom she had worked at Morgan Grenfell. Their target of raising £5 billion within five years was achieved in two years, and funds under management reached £7 billion a year later. In 2004, Nicola set up Bramdean Asset Management  LLP with Sir Derek Higgs. The company ran a number of alternative investment mandates and the fund-of-funds business was sold to Aberdeen Asset Management at the end of 2009. Nicola is also the CEO of Money&Co.
