Small-cap companies receive less analyst coverage than large-cap stocks, leaving pockets of the market where investors can gain from mispriced opportunities. With the right active management and risk procedures, an allocation to small caps can lead to higher returns in the long term. Aberdeen U.S. Small Cap Equity Fund relies on first-hand research and meeting companies face-to-face in an effort to understand the nuances of each company before investing.

Equity stocks of small-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; and are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards, and political and economic risks. These risks are enhanced in emerging markets countries.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by the manager research analysts of Morningstar. Morningstar evaluates funds based on five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. Analysts use this five pillar evaluation to determine how they believe funds are likely to perform over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. They consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research, and the weighting of each pillar may vary. The Analyst Rating scale is Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, Negative. A Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflect an Analyst’s conviction in a fund’s prospects for outperformance. Analyst Ratings are continuously monitored and reevaluated at least every 14 months.
