We are delighted to announce that we have introduced the Baillie Gifford Positive Change fund to the Academy of Funds with a Responsible A rating.

Launched in January 2017, the fund's remit is a newer venture for Baillie Gifford, though we believe the firm has clearly put a lot of thought, effort and resources into this product. It has a well-defined and distinctive investment process for companies it seeks to invest in and places a strong emphasis on both returns and providing a positive impact over the long term. This fund deepens our Responsible ratings, and ultimately we believe it should not disappoint long-term investors who are seeking to invest in a manner that should be positive for the environment and society.
