Martyn Arbib

Sir Martyn Arbib (born 1939) is a businessman who led the Perpetual fund management company very successfully during the late 20th century, unusually based in Henley-on-Thames, England rather than London. He attended Felsted School.[citation needed]

He sold the company to the fund manager AMVESCAP in 2001 for more that £1 billion, receiving £113m together with AMVESCAP shares worth £300m, and the company became known as Invesco Perpetual.

Arbib was a major benefactor in the establishment of the River and Rowing Museum at Henley, which opened in 1998. He was knighted in 2003.

In his spare time, he is interested in horse racing. His horse Snurge won the St. Leger Stakes in 1990. As well as Henley, he also has a home in Barbados.

On 11 January 2008 Swindon Town Holdings Limited, of which Sir Martyn Arbib is an investor but not a director, took control of Swindon Town FC.
