Aberdeen believes that the attractive fundamentals of the Asia Pacific region are too important to ignore.
Markets around the world struggle in a frequently volatile environment, developed nations grapple with their crippling debt, and the Eurozone and the U.S. face high unemployment and low projected growth rates.
Aberdeen firmly believes in the investment opportunities available through the growing economies of the Asia-Pacific region. In fact, it is expected that Asia-Pacific will experience the most significant growth in the world’s wealth, increasing 11.4 percent by 2017 and overtaking North America as the largest wealth region.1
While Asian asset markets should not be considered a "safe haven" during periods of global market volatility and are not entirely immune from the economic woes that are troubling the West, potential opportunities exist for long-term investors who are underweight to the Asia Pacific region.
We believe the long-term upside remains attractive, but investors should understand the levels of risk that investing in the region can involve. Asia's stock markets are still relatively small, can be liquidity-driven and hence volatile, which means the rewards of Asia Pacific investments can carry potentially above-average risks.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. 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). 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.
