1. Objective

    The Global Stewardship Fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the MSCI AC World Index, as stated in Sterling, by at least 2% per annum over rolling five-year periods. There is no guarantee that this objective will be achieved over any time period and actual investment returns may differ from this objective, particularly over shorter time periods. The manager believes this is an appropriate benchmark given the investment policy of the Fund and the approach taken by the manager when investing.

    The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and you or your client may not get back the amount originally invested.
  2. How we invest

    Global Stewardship combines regional expertise with global perspective and an integrated approach to stewardship analysis. We hand-picked a team of regional experts, teamed them up with a sustainability professional and gave them the mandate to pick the 70-100 best companies in the world. The result is a portfolio comprised not just of the ‘global champions’ Baillie Gifford are famed for identifying, but also the lesser-spotted ‘local heroes’ often overlooked by global investors. The team share an investment philosophy that has served Baillie Gifford well for over a century – a truly long-term outlook, a resolute focus on growth companies and a high conviction approach to portfolio construction.
