The Importance of Diversity of Thought in Investing with Michael Saliba

Recorded live at IMPACT 2019®, this episode of Permission to Succeed features Doug Heikkinen and Michael Saliba, Director of Marketing at Baillie Gifford, discussing Baillie Gifford’s history, their commitment to creating a culture of diversity of thought, and how that benefits Advisors.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Baillie Gifford’s story – it may be new to you, but it has been around for more than 100 years;
  • The advantage of hiring people who think beyond and outside the financial services industry;
  • How following innovation can help make the world a better place and provide good investment opportunities for advisors.
  • IRIS Media Works recorded 16 Permission to Succeed podcasts from our pop-up podcast “studio” in the Discovery Data booth at IMPACT 2019. Fueled by coffee and the conference energy swirling around us, we had a great time talking to leaders from across the financial services industry. Thank you to Discovery Data and to our guests for participating in this grand experiment. We hope you enjoy and learn from these conversations as much as we did.
