Managed by

Iain McCombie

Aberdonian Iain McCombie earned an MA in Accounting from his hometown university before embarking upon a career in finance. McCombie began a three year stint with Hall Morrice Accountants in 1991, moving on to become an analyst at Baillie Gifford in 1994. He started managing funds for the group in 1997 and was named head of department of UK Mid and Small Caps in July 2001. McCombie currently co-manages the Baillie Gifford Managed fund and has previously been in charge of the Baillie Gifford British 350 fund and the Baillie Gifford British Smaller Companies fund. He describes his stock selection style as that of a bottom up active investor, backing his judgement by taking significant positions. When not managing money he unwinds by hitting the squash court or enjoying a game of rugby.


The objective is to outperform the FTSE All-Share Index by at least 1.0% per annum over rolling three year periods (before the management fee). There is no guarantee that a positive return will be achieved over rolling three year periods or any time period and capital may be at risk. The Sub-fund will be invested principally in equities of UK companies. These are companies in any economic sector that may be listed, quoted or traded in the UK or elsewhere but which are incorporated, domiciled or conduct a significant portion of their business in the UK. The Sub-fund will be actively managed. The Sub-fund may invest in UK companies of any size.
