Baillie Gifford’s sole business is investment management. Since the company was founded in 1908 it has been a partnership. Today it is owned by 43 partners all of whom work in the business. We believe that the best investment ideas spring from thinking about future possibilities, not short-term probabilities. We set no barriers to the imagination of our investors, encouraging fresh perspectives and the use of diverse sources of information. We currently manage or advise some £173bn on behalf of clients worldwide. Whilst we are predominantly an institutional manager (circa 90% of FUM), we offer an extensive range of investment trusts and open ended funds available to UK individual investors through most fund platforms and supermarkets.
