Baillie Gifford American Class B - Accumulation (GBP)
Our view on this Fund
This fund is on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. However, this is not a recommendation to buy.
We think this fund is a great way to invest in businesses with strong growth prospects in the world's largest stock market. The manager's growth style of investing aims to benefit from investing in exceptional growth businesses and holding them for long enough to reap the rewards. We like their long-term focus and disciplined investment process and think they are well equipped to succeed. We think this fund could work well in a portfolio with little exposure to the US, invested for long-term growth. Its focus on large companies means it could also sit well alongside a US equity fund focused on medium-sized or higher-risk smaller sized companies, or a US fund with a value bias.
