It takes time to achieve transformational change. So we invest in companies for years, even decades. And we support their leaders in making decisions that can deliver strong, sustainable returns to you.

Our history

Continuity and heritage

Since its inception, Baillie Gifford has dedicated itself to discovering global growth opportunities. Today, we leverage the stability and expertise honed over many decades to serve you.

Growth comes when companies innovate to meet society’s needs. That can involve the electrification of transport or using AI to develop better medicines. We support management’s focus on long-term goals.
