Baillie Gifford was established as an investment management partnership over 100 years ago. Much has changed since then. For Baillie Gifford, seeking superior, long-term investment returns for our clients has not.
Our current generation of partners and employees remains single minded about our clients’ requirements. They are responsible for the careful stewardship of our long-term vision without the distraction of short-term shareholder demands. This ownership structure allows us to attract and retain the best investment talent, creating a distinctive and enduring culture.
Baillie Gifford are long-term investors, not speculators. Our investment philosophy focuses on growth while our universe is global. Accordingly, we believe that fundamental analysis and proprietary research are core to a successful, long-term, bottom-up investment approach. From our single investment location in Edinburgh we are able to harness this intellectually curious yet rigorous approach – where the sharing of ideas and robust debate between our investment teams are central to our investment process.
The result is a successful business that continues to grow organically. We now manage and advise £207bn (US$263bn) in specialist equity, fixed income and multi-asset portfolios for a global client base.
