James Budden of Baillie Gifford said: "The fact that these trusts are still going strong suggests that they have been doing most things in the right way for their investors over the past 60 years. "The standout trusts are Murray International and Scottish Mortgage, both of which have adapted well to modern times and have given strong returns to investors over the past five to 10 years. The former was well positioned for the 2008 downturn while Scottish Mortgage offers shareholders a stake in some of the world's most progressive companies."

Neil Woodford of the Edinburgh has put together a concentrated portfolio of predominantly UK companies that can deliver solid earnings and dividend growth, while Bruce Stout of Murray International has constructed a genuinely global portfolio of companies that have delivered the best long-term record of any open or closed-ended global equity fund."
