An End to Cancer?
Investment manager Julia Angeles strikes an optimistic note as she explores some of the recent developments in healthcare, which one day she hopes will bring an end to cancer.
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 joined Baillie Gifford in 2008 as an investment analyst. She worked in a number of global teams before joining Long Term Global Growth, where she focused on analysing companies with the potential for sustained rapid growth. It was here that Marina developed an interest in healthcare, intrigued by the accelerating pace of progress in the field. She joined the Health Innovation team in January 2018 as an Investment Manager, to fully focus her attention on exploring the potential consequences of such progress and how Baillie Gifford can help.
Marina graduated from the London School of Economics and the Higher School of Economics in Russia with BSc degrees in Banking and Finance and in Economics, having studied on these programmes simultaneously.
Rose joined Baillie Gifford in 2013 as an investment analyst. Rose worked on various regional and global strategies before joining the Health Innovation team as an Investment Manager. Having observed the innovations in multiple industries, she believes that the great convergence of different technologies and sciences will ultimately transform life science. Biology can move from alchemy and randomness to become a more predictable, deterministic and repeatable science, that will give rise to a plethora of exciting investment opportunities. She joined the Health Innovation team in September 2018 at the inception of the strategy.
Rose graduated BA (Hons) in Economics and MPhil in Finance and Economics from the University of Cambridge in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
