Capital at risk
Seeking out the world’s best growth companies with the intention of owning each stock for five years or longer.
Why invest in our global equities?
Tomorrow’s great growth companies could emerge from any country or sector. Taking a global remit increases your chance of benefiting from their success. That’s true whether they’re located on the US’s west coast, China’s east coast, in a small Dutch university town or somewhere no one has noticed yet. Baillie Gifford has been uncovering such opportunities for over a century. And we aim to hold onto these investments long enough for you to reap the exceptional returns that winners create.
How do we invest in global equities?
Every year we meet hundreds of businesses, selecting only a small number for your portfolio. Just a few will become transformational growth companies. Our mindset suits this challenge and sets us apart from other fund managers.
Our approach is long-term. We aim to hold companies for five to ten years or more. And we’re unashamedly optimistic, asking how big they could grow in a best-case scenario.
