In this update, Investment Analyst Kate Marshall shares our analysis on the manager, process, culture, cost and performance of the Baillie Gifford Global Discovery Fund.
Investment Objective The Sub-fund aims to outperform (after deduction of costs) the S&P Global Small Cap Index, as stated in sterling, by at least 2% per annum over rolling five-year periods. Investment Policy The Sub-fund will invest at least 90% in shares of companies. The Sub-fund will be actively managed and will invest in shares of companies in any country and in any sector which typically at the time of initial purchase have a market capitalisation of US$10 billion or less and that the ACD considers will offer excellent future growth prospects. To the extent that the Sub-fund is not fully invested in such shares, the Sub-fund may also invest in other transferable securities of companies anywhere in the world, money market instruments, deposits and cash. The Sub-fund may not invest in or otherwise use derivatives.
