Nicola read Jurisprudence at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1983, she joined S.G. Warburg as a graduate trainee. She worked with Leonard Licht, one of the leading fund managers in the City during the 1980s, and together, they built up the Specialist Equity team of what became Mercury Asset Management, and Nicola was appointed a director when she was only 28 years old.
In 1991, Nicola moved to Morgan Grenfell Asset Management (now Deutsche Asset Management) and she was appointed Managing Director of the UK business in 1992. Over the following five years, funds under management increased from £4 billion to £22 billion and Morgan Grenfell became recognised as one of the leading managers of UK pension funds.
In 1997, Nicola left Morgan Grenfell and set up SG Asset Management for the French bank, Societe Generale. The initial target for funds under management was £5 billion in five years. This target was reached after two years and within three years, funds under management had reached £7 billion.
Nicola left SG in 2003 to join AMP in Sydney to run its fund management business but due to family circumstances, she was not able to take up this post.
