KEY INSIGHTSHow the Pandemic is Revealing the Future of HealthcareProduct specialist Jack Torrance talks to Julia Angeles and Marina Record, investment managers of the Health Innovation Strategy. The team discuss the journey they embarked upon to launch the strategy, the way in which 2020 has accelerated trends in the healthcare space, and what they think human health will look like in the future.
Julia joined Baillie Gifford in 2008 and is the Portfolio Manager of the Health Innovation Strategy. Prior to Baillie Gifford, Julia worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Co advising firms in Denmark, Russia and Hungary. Since joining Baillie Gifford Julia has worked on a number of regional and global investment strategies. Julia has a passion for the transformation taking place in healthcare, and it was this passion which led to the establishment of the strategy. She believes that over the next 10 years healthcare systems around the world will experience a monumental change and we will witness a move away from reactive medicine to a world where prevention and cure will become an integral part of healthcare driven by technology. Julia is also a member of the International Growth and Positive Change portfolio construction groups.
Julia obtained a BSc, MSc and PhD in Economics from the University of Aarhus, Denmark and speaks fluent Russian and Danish.Marina Record
