1. We are long-term active investors, not speculators.  Our investment philosophy focuses on growth while our universe is global.

  2. Our rigorous process of fundamental analysis and proprietary research, combined with a depth of expertise, are core to a successful, long-term, bottom-up investment approach. This allows us to exploit global opportunities over periods of, typically, five years or more. It’s a philosophy that has guided our investment strategy for 109 years, so no one can say we don’t practice what we preach.

    Baillie Gifford’s business in Japan stretches back to 1989, when we formed a Joint Venture with Toyo Trust and Banking, today part of Mitsubishi UFJ Trust & Banking. This Joint Venture still exists today and Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking remains our exclusive distributor in Japan.
