Baillie Gifford

Independent Global Investment Managers since 1908

Baillie Gifford is unique in the UK in being a large-scale investment business that has remained an independent private partnership. This ownership structure has allowed us to keep our efforts focused entirely on our clients and their investments and we are now one of the UK’s largest active investment management firms.


The best investment ideas spring from thinking about future possibilities, not short-term probabilities. From Edinburgh, our research covers the globe. We set no barriers to the imagination of our investors, encouraging fresh perspectives and the use of diverse sources of information.


The world is complex. We believe that the way to generate returns for our clients is to focus on the deceptively simple task of identifying and investing in those companies which have the potential to grow at a faster rate, on a more sustainable basis, than their peers. We conduct rigorous qualitative research to establish whether prospective investments have the competitive, financial and strategic advantages to deliver on that potential.

Long Term

We are long-term investors, not speculators. Our investment philosophy focuses on growth, while our universe is global. Over a century of global investment experience has taught us that patience is vital, so we build long-term committed portfolios that aim to anticipate the next decade, not the next quarter. It’s a philosophy that has guided our investment strategy for over 100 years.

As with any investment your clients’ capital is at risk. Baillie Gifford & Co Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
