"As Chair of Scottish Mortgage, I have complete confidence that Scottish Mortgage's Board provides robust governance and oversight. Current topics such as short-term volatility and the Company's exposure to private companies have been debated at length and will continue to be scrutinised by the Board.  The Board is convinced that the managers are taking the right long-term investment approach and building a portfolio of exceptional growth companies that can deliver for shareholders over five years or more."
