Baillie Gifford Managed 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.
Please note the fund currently holds shares in Hargreaves Lansdown PLC.
This fund invests in a mix of company shares from across the globe, alongside bonds and cash. The managers think shares will be the main driver of returns over the long run, and they invest in businesses they feel possess exceptional growth potential. Shares tend to make up more of the fund compared with others in the same sector, so we think this is a more adventurous option. It could boost the growth of a more defensive investment portfolio with a focus on bonds or add a little stability to a portfolio focused on shares.
We like the fund managers' long-term approach and that they stick to the investment process through different market conditions. They're prepared to stay invested in a company through the good times and the bad if they believe it's a great business.
