at the end of the day we are in a bull market, interest rates are very low, shares is the only place to make money, and usa is where the best companies in the world come from. for me i will own this until the bull market stops, at one stage interest rates were kept low for 17 years back in the 80s. pension managers say own bonds also, yes that fine if you want to lock in your portfolio and never look at it again, but as pi, we can go to cash far faster than these traget date investors if we monitor news about the investing world very often. and its far easier to sell thousands of pounds in a trade for a pi than it is for your big pension company to do it to sell £billions over months if they get spooked.. what im after is very low volatility with leverage applied, which this trust will have imo.

I guess the recent increase in NAV of this fund is due to currency movements rather than stellar performance by the fund manager?

Most ITs are Profit warning free & small cap manipulation free - a routinely managed basket of the best 10 perf hi sharpes with a modest amount of leverage is like printing money in slow motion.

i also feel as this trust is moslty owned by institutes who analyse before they buy millions of pounds, then the small pi here on this board has no influence on a penny stock pump n dump, which is good as there are too many con artists out there onthese boards. hence this chat is for intelligent share discussion, we will never see a whoop, whoop, nonsense ever here imo, which is good. is amazing the fools that are taking in by the whoops, kerchings on these boards, so sad to see them easily misled. and the more an institute owns a stock they less they take notice of pump and dumpers. we know baille gifford has over 1000 staff, most in edinburgh and looks after £172 billion for investors.thats confidence, is it not.

agreed, read the coffee can portfolio. its about having a concentrated portfolio, leaving it for 10 yrs, and if one of those stocks is a multibagger unicorn, your overall performance is increased by lots.

With VC/unlisted the failure rate doesnt matter - its catching a 1000 bagging uber that counts

euclid5 "For every Uber there are 50 failures, don't forget that" yes agree with that, but its amatuer pi investors that buy up these stocks by the dozen, mostly on the AIM market.the nanocap listed ones that come begging for money on AIM with their crazy products and solutions that wont ever become monopolies.. i dont expect baillie gifford to only have one success out of 50 unlisted. they may have some failures, they admit that, but i expect their winnners to losers to out number. as they arent pi amatuers sat at home,buying any old junk on the AIM market, they have more access to research to these unlited unicorns than we will ever have, imo.

finding great stocks is prob harder in the first place than the actual questioning the quality/potential of the said stocks once found. i dont have the means to visit companies in the states to scrutinise their accounts, motives, ambitions, usp's, ceos. the trust can and will, they also are using big data to find these stocks, screening them on certain parameters, and rejecting those that dont fit the bill. once they have got a list of companies, thats when the trust does its digging into those stocks, via visits to the companies, something me or you cant do.imo

if you look at the trades going through, they are sometimes nearly £100000, that is good liquidity. for many companies at a similar value of £198 mill, you will not see prices like that going through.some stocks that value, trade in the hundreds of pounds or a few dozen trades. it seems its harder to buy in, than to sell. but once the market cap rises such as scottish mortgage trust did, it should attract even larger amounts of money.imo. what i like most is holders of the trust are investors not pump n dump traders. I feel it is only educated folk that venture onto baillie gifford websites,take time to read and absorb the wise construction of their trusts and funds and then buy in, and i mean institutes, intermidateries and individuals. there is not a hope in hell that anyone owning this trust ever owned cloudtag stock lol.

For every Uber there are 50 failures, don't forget that MarkSP, I did read part of the Admin Doc Was just making a small point in that Unlisted sec't are sometimes, not always difficult to sell due to liquidity, that was all I am invested in BG's existing US managed fund, but not this particular fund, but do like their overall funds performance in their other funds, especially their UK smaller cap foused fund

Euclid Try reading the prospectus "trust will only own small caps that are unlisted" - that is completely wrong :) Maximum holding of unlisted is 20% and that won't be there for 2-3 years in the meantime they are mirroring the US fund Pg42 As regards Unlisted Securities: in terms of size and maturity, the Unlisted Securities in which the Investment Manager will seek to invest are the same types of businesses in which it has been investing for many years. Typically, the Investment Manager will only consider companies with valuations of at least US$500 million, as measured before taking into account new money that the investee company is planning to raise. As regards overall Portfolio construction, the primary investment focus will remain on Listed Securities with healthy liquidity. The Company will not hold any assets as at the date of this Prospectus or immediately following Admission, but is expected to be substantially invested in Listed Securities soon after Admission. The Company does not expect to have any Unlisted Securities in its Portfolio in the period immediately following Admission. Over time, however, the Company’s exposure to Unlisted Securities is expected to grow. Subject to suitable investment opportunities arising, Unlisted Securities could comprise approximately 20 per cent. of the Portfolio within two to three years after the date of Admission.

The only prob i found was i had difficulty buying £10000 the other day, due to the popularity of the trust, when a pension fund made a recent big purchase. this is why the trust issue more shares into the market, to avoid the share price becomes overvalued. scottish mortgage trust had the same problem, too much demand for it, it had to issue more shares for institutes buying in to prevent the NAV becoming overvalued, which deters some new buyers.

Can be difficult to trade or sell on due to liquidity sometimes trust will only own small caps that are unlisted But they have a good track record in their Funds

hi again, folk must understand the smart thinking here, baillie gifford wont invest in AIM market micro caps, as they can be played left right and centre daily by stock pump n dumpers, amatuer investors that buy and sell up hourly, daily based on rumours, fear,greed, inexperience. thats why this trust will only own small caps that are unlisted, these arent at the whim of the amatuer pump n dump aim market, these are stocks that you hold for years as they are on purpose illiquid, and become liquid on IPO day. they are owned by directors that arent out for a quick buck like so many say exploratory mining stocks on AIM market. and combine the trust with highly liquid popular stocks which gives the trust its liquidity, then that is smart investing by baillie gifford imo.

hi, alot of folk dont understand the intelligence behind trusts like this, trusts are superior to funds as they dont need to sell up on a big ouflow, the price is based on the NAV the companies within the trust.hence it has a daily NAV trusts can also use leverage, funds cant, works well with low interest rates.this trust will in time use leverage, as stated in prospectus., that is fine when interest rates are very low. infact buffett leveraged for years, at a ratio of 1 to 1.6, using "free" capital from geico insurance premiums paid up front. .his returns were only around 10% plus , but with leverage he got it up to 20%. take 20% growth times 50 years, makes lot of money compounded. anyway, the only thing i think this growth fund should do is concentrate its holdings even more, if it could go down to say only 10 stocks, it would really compound if it picked great winners. it says it will vary between 40 and 80 stocks., but it maybe limted by rules i guess. some of buffetts stocks he holds 20% plus in his portfolio, he bets big on a few but concentrated portfolio. ive been a fan for baillie gifford for a long while, and even though very few here will ever read this post, as the trust is mostly held by quality institutes, not pump n dump traders. IMO, as the trust holds for min 5 years, you should see lower volitality, as low beta can produce better growth, another buffett secret, buy low beta stocks with leverage equals winning smooth growth. ps, i have to comment on the top page, amazon did not go up 1 million% it went up 8000% but had many share splits. www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/082715/if-you-had-invested-right-after-amazons-ipo.asp the best growth stock is actually apple. anyway this trust should do very well if you hold LONG term IMO, dont try and trade it. patience is key, unicorns take time to grow.
