1. BAILLIE GIFFORD. INDEPENDENT GLOBAL INVESTMENT MANAGERS.

    AS A PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP WE HAVE NEVER SHOUTED “ABOUT US”. SO LET’S HAVE A QUIET CHAT.

    Baillie Gifford is unique in the UK in being a large-scale investment business that has remained an independent private partnership. And this ownership structure has allowed us to keep our efforts focused entirely on our clients. As a result, a lot of people actually know very little ‘about us’. But since our story has shaped what defines us today we thought we’d share it with you, without the hyperbole.
