At Aberdeen, asset management is our primary business.
Aberdeen has been active in Asia since 1985 with on-the-ground presence in the Asia-Pacific region for over two decades. We place fund managers in the country or region in which they specialize, helping put our investment teams in a strong position to evaluate Asian investment opportunities from a position of experience.
For Asia Pacific equities, our house rule is always to meet company management before we invest – and to continue meeting with management as owners of the stock. We pay little attention to benchmarks and we never chase market fads—if we don't like a company, we won't own it.
Our Asian fixed income investment process is focused on identifying and taking advantage of investment opportunities across the entire Asian fixed-income universe. A single, fundamentally driven process for investing in Asia provides the basis for dynamic allocation of risk across three sub strategies – interest rates, currency and credit. Each sub-strategy is managed independently by specialist investment teams who adopt a bottom-up approach for security selection.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Fixed income securities are subject to certain risks including, but not limited to interest rate, prepayment, extension and credit risks. 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 market countries. Concentrating investments in the Asia-Pacific region subjects the portfolio to more volatility and greater risk of loss than geographically diverse investments.
