About Iain McCombie

Aberdonian Iain McCombie earned an MA in Accounting from his hometown university before embarking upon a career in finance.

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.
