Company biography

At Baillie Gifford, existing clients’ interests are paramount and we frequently close our products to new business to ensure that the integrity of our strategies and the quality of service are maintained. This commitment to professional excellence ensures clients receive our full attention. Thanks to our partnership structure we are free to focus entirely on our long-term vision to deliver the best results for our clients without the distraction of short-term shareholder demands.

Today we manage money on behalf of some of the world’s largest institutional investors. We manage international portfolios for US and Canadian clients and have a blue chip client base covering corporate, public and foundation assets. We have had Asian Clients since 1989 and we manage funds for some of Continental Europe’s leading pension funds and financial institutions. Our broad geographical exposure also encompasses institutional clients in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Korea, the Middle East and South Africa.
