Growth Investing for a Sustainable World 

We seek companies that are sustainable in both senses of the word – delivering enduring growth and enduring good. That’s a noble aim against a backdrop of broken ESG investing; where backwards-looking, box-ticking approaches pervade; and broken growth investing - where innovation is dead and value is back in vogue. But that aim is indeed achievable for those that take a wide-angle lens on sustainability.

Investment Specialist Alasdair McHugh will discuss how the Baillie Gifford Sustainable Growth Fund harnesses powerful positive feedback loops to drive meaningful outperformance over the long term.

Learning Objectives:

- Understand the single best predictor of long-term share price outperformance.

- Reframe sustainable investing as a world of opportunities, rather than a downside protection strategy.

- Learn how a business can be impactful not just through its products or services, but its business practices too.
