We relentlessly seek out game-changing companies and other assets that can sustain long-term growth and remain resilient in a changing world. As an investment manager, we aim to deliver strong returns for our clients while supporting the firms we back on their behalf to succeed.
Philosophy and values
Finding the small number of companies with outstanding potential takes time, rigour and resource. We source ideas by building relationships with exceptional entrepreneurs and forward-thinking academics who lead us to look in promising places.
What makes us different?
Being Edinburgh-based gives us stability and perspective, but we are truly global in our investment approach. We accept uncertainty, look through the financial markets’ short-term noise and are, above all, patient as we seek opportunities on your behalf.
What does it mean to be an Actual investor?
For more than a century, Baillie Gifford has invested in growth opportunities across the globe. We strive to place our clients capital in the most competitive, innovative and efficient companies, mindful that they operate in ever-changing conditions.
