What is Investment Management?

People want to be sure they have enough money to live well after they retire. A company's employees pay a percentage of their salaries into a pension scheme to support their retirement.

These contributions are passed to a pension fund or trust, whose job is to grow the fund. To achieve this, most pension funds use a range of different investment management firms and investments: bonds, property and stocks and shares for example.

At Baillie Gifford, we mainly invest in equities (shares in a company). Our investment teams research potential investment options, seeking out mainly public companies that will grow significantly over a long-term period such as five or even ten years.

We also have a number of non-equity teams that invest in bonds and other assets such as property and infrastructure.

Our long-term investment approach encourages companies to ignore stock market pressure and invest in growth opportunities to develop their services and products, thereby increasing their revenue and profits.

With growing profits, the shares we own in these companies will increase in value over the long term.

This increase in value helps to grow the pension fund and make a positive impact on people's retirement income.
