Philosophy and values
To find our clients long-term growth opportunities, we think in terms of years and decades rather than months and quarters. And when we unearth companies poised to prosper from change, we aim to be long-term shareholders on our clients behalf, supporting management to achieve the best possible results.
It's about time

Our take on private companies
Active, low-turnover investing
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.
We prize the diversity of our specialists and rigorous in-house research methods. But we also acknowledge that others can help us think distinctively.
Contrarian insights from academia encouraged us to invest in Tesla, MecardoLibre and Illumina, among others. So we treasure our relationships with academics and other experts. And by sponsoring book festivals and speaking to authors, we encourage the flow of ideas and expose ourselves to new voices.
