Choose another fund:

Investment Objective

The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of emerging market country issuers.

Investment Strategy

As a non-fundamental policy, under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of emerging market companies. An emerging market country is any country determined by the Adviser or Subadviser to have an emerging market economy, considering factors such as the country’s credit rating, its political and economic stability and the development of its financial and capital markets. Emerging market countries can include every nation in the world except the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and most countries located in Western Europe.

Risk Considerations

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.

Equity stocks of small and mid-cap companies carry greater risk, and more volatility than equity stock of larger, more established companies.

Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these risks.

* Effective February 22, 2013, the Fund is closed to new investors except in limited circumstances. For further information, please see the “Investing with Aberdeen Funds – Fund Closure” section of the prospectus beginning on page 184 of the statutory prospectus.
