U.S. Equities


The United States is home to some of the world’s highest quality companies and strongest brands. At the end of 2009, companies listed on the U.S. stock exchanges comprised nearly one-third of the total market capitalization of all publicly traded companies globally.

We believe a truly diversified portfolio should include an allocation to the region’s equities, and Aberdeen’s Philadelphia-based U.S. equity team has the expertise to select strong, long-term investments for inclusion into our large-cap and small-cap strategies.
