Baillie Gifford & Co is an independent investment management firm, founded in 1908, based in Edinburgh and employs over 950 people. It plays an active role in the community by supporting projects in the areas of education, social inclusion and the arts.
We are thrilled to have Baillie Gifford sponsoring our performances of Handel's Solomon with the Orchestra and Chorus in the 2017/18 Season. Their continuing support of the SCO is hugely appreciated and we are very grateful indeed.
Baillie Gifford Partner, Mark Urquhart, said, "We are proud to be deepening our relationship with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. As one of the world’s leading orchestras based in Edinburgh, the SCO is very much in tune with Baillie Gifford's desire to invest in Edinburgh, support the arts in Scotland and maintain its global reach. Great musical performances require hard work, diligence, creativity and intelligence – qualities which we at Baillie Gifford strive to bring to investment."
