City’s most famous woman says: “I’m boring”

The most famous face in fund management in the City talks about the fruitless efforts by tabloid newspapers to dig up details of her private life in the wake of her departure from Morgan Grenfell four years ago.

"I am the most boring person in the world," says Nicola Horlick, but it is difficult to believe her. The most famous face in fund management in the City is referring to fruitless efforts by tabloid newspapers to dig up details of her private life in the wake of her departure from Morgan Grenfell four years ago. "If there had been anything they would have found it but they didn't. I've been happily married to the same man for 17 years. There wasn't anything to write."


But Horlick is far from boring and her profile has been very public ever since she hit the headlines in January 1997 after being suspended by MGAM's chief executive Robert Smith, now Sir Robert, after he found she had been talking to rival banks.


Horlick subsequently went to Frankfurt, accompanied by a posse of journalists to talk to Deutsche Bank executives but eventually walked away.
