Malcolm Herring

London-born Malcolm Herring graduated from the London School of Economics with a BSc in Monetary Economics, and he also holds a Certified Diploma in Accounting and Finance. Considered in some quarters as a safe pair of hands in the balanced managed sector, his relatively cautious investment process led to outperformance on a risk-adjusted basis through 2007. In a career spanning nearly 30 years Malcolm has remained a “one company man” having joined Baring as an investment analyst in their UK equity research department after graduation in 1979, taking on his first portfolio manager role in 1981 and subsequently being appointed a Divisional Director in 1989. Malcolm runs the Baring Portfolio. He has also been involved in the management and marketing of charitable fund services for a number of years. Away from work, Malcolm lists his leisure interests as rugby and music.
