Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust is a popular fund which invests on a global basis. Stocks are carefully selected for their strong growth prospects. The trust aims to outperform world stock market indices over a five year rolling period.
The trust has a long term investment horizon and invests with real patience. The portfolio is driven by corporate attraction rather than index construction. The managers see themselves as owners of companies rather than renters of stocks. The largest holdings include Tesla and Amazon.
The resolutely global approach taken by the trust is reflected in the current investment themes such as the speed of technological advances and how they can disrupt established business practices, and the re-emergence of China as an economic superpower.
As at Jan 2021, Scottish Mortgage had total net assets of £17.99 billion, making it one of the UK's largest investment trusts.
