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.

We are the largest manager of investment trusts in the UK with a range of nine trusts. We have an extensive range of OEIC sub-funds and manage investments globally for pension funds, institutions and charities.

Curious

The best investment ideas spring from thinking about future possibilities, not short-term probabilities. From Edinburgh, our research covers the globe. We set no barriers to the imagination of our investors, encouraging fresh perspectives and the use of diverse sources of information.

Active

The world is complex. We believe that the way to generate returns for our clients is to focus on the deceptively simple task of identifying and investing in those companies which have the potential to grow at a faster rate, on a more sustainable basis, than their peers. We conduct rigorous qualitative research to establish whether prospective investments have the competitive, financial and strategic advantages to deliver on that potential.

Long Term

We are long-term investors, not speculators. Our investment philosophy focuses on growth, while our universe is global. Over a century of global 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.

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.
