1. Overview

    To produce capital growth over the long term by investing primarily in emerging market equities. Performance will be measured against the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

    Investment Proposition

    We invest on a long-term (five year) perspective and have a strong preference for growth. We are looking for significant upside in each stock that we invest in. The process is driven by rigorous, fundamental, bottom-up analysis undertaken by our dedicated emerging markets team. The fund manager draws on this analysis, as well as insights gleaned from discussion with all of Baillie Gifford’s global investors, to produce a portfolio that typically holds 60–100 stocks.
