Martyn Arbib

Sir Martyn Arbib (born 1939) is a British 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.

Martyn Arbib attended Felsted School.[citation needed]

Arbib was a major benefactor in the establishment of the River and Rowing Museum at Henley, which opened in 1998.[1] He was knighted in 2003.

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

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.

In his spare time, Arbib 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.
