We relentlessly seek out game-changing companies and other assets that can sustain long-term growth and remain resilient in a changing world. As an investment manager, we aim to deliver strong returns for our clients while supporting the firms we back on their behalf to succeed.
What does Baillie Gifford do?
We are an independent investment manager founded in Edinburgh. Much has changed in our 116 years, but our focus on seeking superior, long-term investment returns for our clients has not.
We aim to find game-changing companies and other assets that can sustain growth and remain resilient in a changing world for decades to come.
Philosophy and values
Finding the small number of companies with outstanding potential takes time, rigour and resource. We source ideas by building relationships with exceptional entrepreneurs and forward-thinking academics who lead us to look in promising places.
What makes us different?
Being Edinburgh-based gives us stability and perspective, but we are truly global in our investment approach. We accept uncertainty, look through the financial markets’ short-term noise and are, above all, patient as we seek opportunities on your behalf.
We believe companies that contribute usefully to society are more likely to thrive over time. And we can play a role by supporting management in pursuing long-term goals.
Diversity and inclusion
Fairness. Equality. Openness. These principles form the backbone of diversity and inclusion at Baillie Gifford, where we want everyone to develop and maximise their potential.
What does it mean to be an Actual investor?
For more than a century, Baillie Gifford has invested in growth opportunities across the globe. We strive to place our clients capital in the most competitive, innovative and efficient companies, mindful that they operate in ever-changing conditions.
