1. BAILLIE GIFFORD LONG TERM GLOBAL GROWTH FUND
    BAILLIE GIFFORD LONG TERM GLOBAL GROWTH FUND

    Overview

    The Baillie Gifford Long Term Global Growth Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.

    Investment Proposition

    Long Term Global Growth is a purely stock-driven, unconstrained global equity strategy focused on investing in exceptional growth companies. This approach is expressly long term, we believe that investing in companies with the scope to grow to multiples of their current size has the potential to transform the returns for investors over time. The Fund’s share price can be volatile, which we look to embrace as it can provide opportunities to invest in companies with great long term growth prospects at opportune prices.
