Looking to continued success
Two new partners at Baillie Gifford as three retire
Baillie Gifford & Co, the independent investment partnership, has appointed two partners.
They are Jan Oliver, who is a director in the clients department with responsibility for income strategies, and Gary Robinson, who is an investment manager for the US Equities team.
Their elevation coincides with three partners retiring from the firm on 30 April. Gerald Smith, who has held senior leadership roles in equity and non-equity strategies; Alison Warden a partner in finance and operations; and Jonathan Bates, an investment manager for the ACWI Alpha strategy.
Andrew Telfer, joint senior partner, said: “We are inviting Jan and Gary to join the Baillie Gifford partnership, due to their substantial contribution to date and the increasing leadership roles that they will play in future.
“At the same time we all thank Gerald, Alison and Jonathan for their many years of exceptional service to our clients.
“The continuing success of our firm is founded on outstanding long-term investment performance and excellent client service. Thanks to our stable partnership structure, we invest with conviction and always place client interests first.”
