QuotedData's Investment Companies Annual Review of 2020


A year that changed the world


It was the year that nobody will forget. Industries re-shaped, many of them probably permanently, a change of leadership in the US, and finally a remarkable feat of human ingenuity in the roll-out of several vaccines by the year-end, are just some of the many themes touched on by managers and chairs in this final monthly roundup of 2020.


· Baillie Gifford had a year to remember, with the three best performing funds of the year, Baillie Gifford US Growth, Pacific Horizon, and Scottish Mortgage

· The investment companies sector grew by over £20bn to £199.3bn, in market capitalisation terms, with market movements driving most of this

· The royalties sector made the biggest leap, as a percentage of market capitalisation at the start of 2020. Hipgnosis Songs raised over £750m and we also had the launch of Round Hill Music Royalty
