Head of Ballie Gifford UK Equities retires

Gerard Callahan, Ballie Gifford’s head of UK Equities, is due to retire in April 2022, marking 31 years within the business.  Milena Mileva, lead manager of Ballie Gifford’s UK Equity Focus fund, is to take over responsibility of the UK Equity Alpha strategy once Callahan retires. The pair will work alongside each other as co-managers in the interim, to ensure a smooth transition period.

Mileva has worked for the group for twelve years, becoming co-manager of the Baillie Gifford UK Growth trust in 2018, before being named as lead on the UK Equity Focus mandate the following year.
