1. How to buy investment trusts

    Baillie Gifford manages a range of investment trusts covering general, international and specialist markets.
  2. We take a distinctive approach which recognises that many businesses are global. The country where a company is listed is not necessarily the place it conducts most of its business as many successful companies are global in their reach. In choosing investments, a holistic approach is taken whereby companies are chosen on their long-term merits alone rather than with reference to where they are listed or the proportion of an index they represent.

    Please note that all Baillie Gifford managed trusts are available for investment by intermediaries and their clients.

    If your client is interested in investing in one or more of our investment trusts, they can do so through our Investment Trust Share Plan, Investment Trust ISA and Children's Savings Plan.
