1. Overview

    We make active long-term investments in growing companies located in countries in developed and emerging markets. We seek to invest in businesses that exhibit sustained above-average growth and superior profit margins.

    Investment Proposition

    The Fund aims to represent the best international growth investments from across Baillie Gifford’s research teams. The Fund is constructed on a bottom-up basis and aims to invest in companies that enjoy sustainable competitive advantages in their industries and which we believe will grow faster than the market average over time. We aim to take a genuinely long-term investment perspective with the resolve to ignore short-term market distractions. Baillie Gifford’s culture and stable partnership structure is fundamental in allowing this philosophy to flourish.
