Nigel Baynes

Nigel Baynes is a fund manager at Marlborough Fund Managers. Baynes started his career in the industry as a software specialist developing portfolio management solutions for an asset management company. He worked as an investment analyst and then fund manager before setting up iFunds in 2001. With the growth in the ETF market, and ongoing development of the company's proprietary software based investment process, iFunds was able to team up with Marlborough and launch a range of actively managed ETF funds.


The Fund aims to deliver a level of return over rolling three year periods equivalent to cash (as measured by LIBOR) plus three per cent a year before fees and charges. There is no guarantee that a positive return will be achieved over this, or any period, and capital is at risk. The annualised volatility for the Fund is expected to be five per cent per annum irrespective of general equity and bond market conditions.
