Baillie Gifford Managers Named Top Performing Fund Managers

Two fund managers at Baillie Gifford have made the Financial Times Adviser’s list of top performing fund managers for 2019. Mark Urquhart and Torcail Stewart were named on the esteemed list as being some of the best performing managers dating back to the year 2000. These performances have been based on risk adjusted returns in during times of economic growths and down-turns.

 Mark Urquhart manages the Long-Term Global Growth Fund which is included as one of the funds in our managed and growth funds. He has extensive experience in fund management, joining Baillie Gifford in 1996 after graduating from Oxford University. Before making Partner in 2004, he headed the Japanese Equity Team.

These managers comprise the top ten percent of UK fund managers. 

 According to researchers, in recent years, there has been a trend of large cap companies performing stronger than their small cap counterparts. This is thought to be due in part to Brexit.
