    BAILLIE GIFFORD DEVELOPED EAFE ALL CAP FUND

    Overview

    The Baillie Gifford Developed EAFE All Cap Fund seeks capital appreciation.

    Investment Proposition

    The Baillie Gifford Developed EAFE All Cap Fund aims to deliver good long-term performance by investing in a portfolio of 50-90 developed market international growth stocks. The portfolio is built through bottom-up stock selection by the International All Cap Portfolio Construction Group (formerly known as International Focus PCG). As active growth investors we differ from the benchmark, and look for businesses that seek to outperform the market over the long-term. Portfolio guidelines ensure a level of diversification across sectors and regions.
