BAILLIE GIFFORD AMERICAN FUND

WE ARE TRULY ACTIVE MANAGERS WITH AN ACTIVE SHARE OF 91%*.

LAND OF BIG OPPORTUNITIES.

The Baillie Gifford American Fund aims to deliver significant outperformance for investors by seeking out exceptional growth companies in America and owning them for long enough that the advantages of their respective business models and the strength of their individual cultures become the dominant drivers of their stock prices. It is a strategy that we have employed since the fund launched in 1997. When we consider a company’s management, culture, growth opportunity and edge we are looking for areas where we believe that our view differs from the consensus. We are index agnostic and don’t follow the crowd. Over the last five years the Baillie Gifford American Fund has delivered a total return of 168.7% compared to 91.8% for the sector**. Standardised past performance to 31 March**
