FE Trustnet verdict
Overall, performing about the same as the peer group composite. Nevertheless, over a long track record, the manager has outperformed the peer group more often than not. Poor stockpicking has had a material downward effect on results, which have not been particularly exposed to falling markets.
Manager profile
Steven graduated BAcc in Economics and Accountancy from the University of Glasgow in 1992 and completed an MSc in Economics from Warwick University in 1993. Prior to Baillie Gifford, Steven was a fixed income investment manager with Scottish Widows. His considerable experience includes seven years undertaking analysis and research for the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, and involvement in managing the UK’s foreign exchange reserves. Steven joined Baillie Gifford in 2004 and is Head of the Rates and Currencies Team.

Performance vs peer group composite: Steven Hay
How a manager matches up against his peers gives you some idea of how talented he is. Very few managers perform equally well in rising and falling markets, so knowing which type of market a manager is capable of performing well within is also important.
