Investment Manager, Baillie Gifford
Paulina Sliwinska grew up in Poland and the US, and lived in France for a year before attending the University of Edinburgh. Upon graduating with a degree in Arabic and Politics, she joined Baillie Gifford, an Edinburgh-based investment management firm. After rotating through several equity teams, she now co-manages a concentrated international equity strategy that invests in companies outside the US. She is also setting up a new Baillie Gifford fund focusing on companies that will drive decarbonisation over the coming decades, with an emphasis on those companies that create products and service that delight customers while also removing carbon emissions. Outside of work, Paulina enjoys most outdoor pursuits as long as they don’t involve jumping off a plane, and particularly loves gardening and hillwalking.
