The purpose of this website is to provide general information about the US-registered investment advisers which are part of the Aberdeen Group, and the vehicles which they manage or sub-advise. It is not intended as an advertisement or an invitation to buy, or an offer to sell, securities.
Past performance is not indicative of future results, and there can be no guarantee as to the accuracy of market forecasts. Opinions, estimates, and forecasts may be changed without notice. This material is not an offer, or a solicitation of an offer, to purchase any securities, including shares of any investment company, unless preceded or accompanied by a prospectus. The views and opinions expressed are provided for general information only, and do not constitute specific tax, legal, or investment advice to, or recommendations for, any person. We suggest that you consult your financial or tax advisor, accountant, or attorney with regard to your specific situation.
There is no assurance that the investment objective of any portfolio will be achieved. Equity stocks of small and mid-cap companies carry greater risk, and more volatility than equity stocks of larger, more established companies. Foreign securities are more volatile, harder to price and less liquid than U.S. securities. They are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards, and political and economic risks. These risks are enhanced in emerging markets countries.
Fixed income securities are subject to certain risks including, but not limited to: interest rate (changes in interest rates may cause a decline in the market value of an investment), credit (changes in the financial condition of the issuer, borrower, counterparty, or underlying collateral), prepayment (debt issuers may repay or refinance their loans or obligations earlier than anticipated), and extension (principal repayments may not occur as quickly as anticipated, causing the expected maturity of a security to increase). Derivatives are speculative and present the risk of disproportionately increased losses and/or reduced gains when the financial asset or measure to which the derivative is linked changes in unexpected ways.
There are special risks associated with selling securities short. A short position will lose value as the securities price increases. Theoretically, the loss on a short sale can be unlimited. The use of leverage will also increase market exposure and magnify risk. The use of leverage may subject investments to additional risk and could magnify losses.

Alternative investments involve specific risks that may be greater than those associated with traditional investments; are not suitable for all clients; and intended for experienced and sophisticated investors who meet specific suitability requirements and are willing to bear the high economic risks of the investment. Investments of this type may engage in speculative investment practices; carry additional risk of loss due to the nature and volatility of the underlying investments; and are generally considered to be illiquid due to restrictive repurchase procedures. These investment vehicles may also involve different regulatory and reporting requirements, complex tax structures, and delays in distributing important tax information. You should only invest in alternative investments or other similar strategies if you do not require a liquid investment and can bear the risk of substantial losses.
The applicable prospectus or offering memorandum will contain a listing of the various risks related to the investment and its operations. You should read the prospectus and/or private placement memorandum carefully to determine whether an investment is suitable for you in light of, among other things, your financial situation, need for liquidity, tax situation and other investments. One should always consult a qualified professional advisor before making an investment. There can be no assurance that any investment will meet its performance objectives or that substantial losses will be avoided.
Asset allocation or diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss.
