Our philosophy is quite simple.
It is to align our clients' interests with companies that are capable of generating wealth over long periods of time.
From Walter Scott's office in Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, the firm's unrelenting search for world-leading companies has remained unchanged since the firm was founded. The firm's investment philosophy and process born from Edinburgh's proud history of long-term, fundamental equity analysis, has similarly been deliberately consistent.
Walter Scott's team of investment professionals, with diverse academic credentials and eclectic interests, works collectively to identify world-class businesses. That search is not confined by geography or sector limits; instead it is solely focused on a rigorous search for companies that meet the firm's defined investment criteria and standards.
