Kate Fox joined asset manager Baillie Gifford in 2002 immediately after graduating from Edinburgh University. She is responsible for the management of the Worldwide Positive Change strategy. The long-term investment approach is based on her understanding that she is not a speculator but an investor. The sustainability approach is based on the sustainable development goals of the UN and Kate focus on companies that have a direct positive impact on the environment with their services and products. The companies should have a strategy for reducing their carbon footprint, consciously promote gender diversity and respect and observe labour rights.
We like the very long term approach and the commitment to sustainability.
