At The Scottish, our experienced team adopts a high conviction, global contrarian investment approach that clearly distinguishes the Company from our global investment trust peers and from passive investment products.

As an independent investment trust, The Scottish is able to take this differentiated view in the long-term interest of shareholders. Our closed-ended fund structure allows us to be patient with our investments.
