Baillie Gifford

Independent Global Investment Managers

Baillie Gifford has been managing investments since 1908. As a wholly independent partnership, with no external shareholders demanding short-term gains, we can focus on what we do best, seeking out long-term investment returns for our clients. Our investment philosophy focuses on growth, while our universe is global. Over a century of investment experience has taught us that patience is vital, and we are not interested in following fads and fashions or pursuing short-term performance. It's a philosophy that has guided our investment strategy for over 100 years. We are the largest manager of investment trusts in the UK with a range of nine trusts. 

The value of a stock market investment and any income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. Baillie Gifford & Co Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Scottish Mortgage

Scottish Mortgage is a low-cost equity fund which invests on a global basis. Stocks are carefully selected for their strong growth prospects. The Trust aims to outperform world stock market indices over a five year rolling period.

Risk Warnings and Important Information

The trust directors and staff of Baillie Gifford & Co may hold shares in the trusts and may buy or sell shares. The trusts can make use of derivatives, which may impact on their performance. The investment trusts managed by Baillie Gifford & co are listed UK companies. They are not authorised or regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. The trusts can borrow money to make further investments (sometimes known as ‘gearing’ or ‘leverage’). When this money is repaid by the trust, the value of the investments may not be enough to cover the borrowing and interest costs, and the trust will make a loss. If the trust’s investments fall in value, any borrowings will increase this loss. If a trust invests in unlisted investments, it could increase the risk. These assets may be more difficult to buy or sell, so changes in their prices may be greater.
