Our core business is Guardian News & Media, which publishes the Guardian and the Observer newspapers and the website. We also have a diverse portfolio of investments to help support our journalism. We are wholly owned by the Scott Trust, which was established in 1936 to secure the ongoing independence of the Guardian.
