Baillie Gifford

Baillie Gifford & Co, an independent investment partnership founded in 1908, is
headquartered in Edinburgh with offices in Buenos Aires, Dublin, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Krakow, London, New York, Shanghai, Toronto and Zurich. It has € 380bn in assets under management and advice.

Baillie Gifford are long-term investors, not speculators. Our investment philosophy focuses on growth while our universe is global. Accordingly, we believe that fundamental analysis and proprietary research are core to a successful, long-term, bottom-up investment approach. From our head office in Edinburgh we are able to harness this intellectually curious and rigorous approach – where the sharing of ideas and robust debate between our investment teams are central to our investment process.

Baillie Gifford has been managed as a partnership since 1908. Much has changed since then, but most has stayed the same:

  • Put existing clients before asset growth
  • We are long-term investors and not speculators
  • We are focused on active management
  • The partnership creates a corporate culture to attract talent and foster long term thinking
  • Stability and continuity over 6th partner generation creates trust with clients, staff and companies we invest in 

Baillie Gifford is unique 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.

Marktvisie

Beleggers ondergaan vandaag de dag een ware kakofonie aan mediaruis en kortetermijnsignalen. Het meeste daarvan negeren wij resoluut. Ons vizier is gericht op de daadwerkelijk significante veranderingen in de wereld, het tempo waarin die in een stroomversnelling raken en de uitdagingen voor het financiële systeem dat hier naar onze overtuiging niet zo goed mee om kan gaan. Verandering en disruptie worden vaak verkeerd begrepen. Zij zijn altijd omgeven met onzekerheid. In reactie hierop richten beleggers zich meer op de kortetermijnresultaten dan op creativiteit en verbeeldingskracht voor de lange termijn. Wij omarmen het onbekende echter en werken constructief samen met het management van de ondernemingen waarin we beleggen. We moedigen hen aan om zich niet te fixeren op de winstdoelstellingen op kwartaal- en jaarbasis, maar een goed fundament voor toekomstige successen te leggen. Dankzij deze opstelling zijn we een voorkeursaandeelhouder voor veel zeer innovatieve en betekenisvolle beursgenoteerde en familiebedrijven in de wereld.

Ambities en Waarden

Baillie Gifford has been offering investment management services for more than 110 years. The world has changed in the intervening period and stewardship of the firm has passed down through several generations of partners; however, the delivery of good, long-term investment returns for clients has remained our overriding objective throughout.

Baillie Gifford’s partnership structure is unusual amongst large investment management companies. Our current generation of 47 working partners and over 1400 employees remain singularly focused on our clients’ requirements. We have no external shareholders. This structure helps us to attract and retain talented staff and underpins our organisation’s stability and its distinct and enduring culture. It also allows us to take a long-term view in everything that we do.

There are five main principles to our strategy:

1. Focus investment teams on high value tasks. We aim to reduce distractions to increase the chances of outperformance.

2. Back our investment judgement. Embracing risk within a reasonably diversified portfolio is an integral part of the pursuit of meaningful returns over the long term.

3. Provide high levels of service to enhance client relationships and retain client confidence through clear, thoughtful and helpful communications.

4. Keep our existing clients’ interests’ paramount. Evolving with client needs and developing our business is important but generating strong results for existing clients will always be our core goal.

5. Keep our firm and its activities simple. Our time should be focused on investment activities and on looking after and understanding our clients’ needs. We minimise bureaucracy where we can.

Baillie Gifford’s sole business is investment management. We do not carry out any custodial or intermediary activities. With the exception of some administrative aspects of pooled vehicles, all operations and controls are carried out in-house.

Baillie Gifford operates within a framework that sets high standards of professionalism and personal integrity. We firmly believe that a strong control environment is essential for our business and we continue to invest in the enhancement of controls where needed.

History

Baillie Gifford & Co was founded in Edinburgh in 1908 and is one of the UK’s largest independent investment management firms, 100% owned by the 43 partners who all work within the firm. Our partnership structure has not changed since 1908 and we are committed to retaining this structure.

Throughout the early part of the twentieth century, Baillie Gifford & Co developed and managed a wide range of investment trusts investing in equities and bonds worldwide. Our first investment offering was a closed-end mutual fund launched in 1909, the Straits Mortgage & Trust Company. The fund initially specialised in investing in the Far East and then moved to a global outlook, with a strong emphasis on North American investments. This trust, now called Scottish Mortgage, is still a client and is one of the largest investment trusts in the industry.

During the 1960s, Baillie Gifford developed its International Equity discipline, becoming one of the first European investment firms to explore the markets of Japan and other areas in the Far East. In recent decades the firm has forged successful investment specialties in Japan, Europe, North America and Emerging Markets.

By the time of its centenary in 2008, Baillie Gifford had offices in New York and London in addition to its headquarters in Edinburgh.

Baillie Gifford Overseas Limited was established in 1983 and provides investment management and advisory services to non-UK clients. Baillie Gifford Overseas Limited is wholly owned by Baillie Gifford & Co. It is registered with the Securities & Exchange Commission in the United States of America.

 

More recently, as our record of stable organic growth has continued, the firm has steadily diversified both in terms of client base and by the range of investment strategies we offer such as multi asset and fixed income strategies. By March 2021 we were managing asset of over € 380bn for clients in around 30 countries, mainly for pension fund clients but also increasingly for other financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds and private individuals.
