Drive your fixed income opportunities further.

Fixed income – the global asset class

The interest rate outlook may remain uncertain, but we believe fixed income remains an essential asset class for any investor seeking long-term yield and portfolio diversification. And for investors who think it's time to diversify into global fixed income markets, it's time to look to Aberdeen.

A global asset manager, Aberdeen has a worldwide presence that includes 33 offices across 25 countries (as of June 2014).

On the ground and on the move, we're dedicated to finding the most compelling opportunities for income and diversification across global fixed income. That includes a strong focus on the Asian and Emerging Markets in which we have built our global reputation.


There’s a world of opportunity for income out there - discover it with Aberdeen today.

Why global fixed income now?

Many investors are aware of the potential benefits of exposure to non-U.S. equity markets—both in terms of performance and risk diversification.

Today, depending on your risk tolerance and investment objectives, a similar case can be made for diversifying your portfolio’s fixed income allocation globally.

In a recent survey, over 80% of financial advisors said they plan to discuss investing internationally with their clients.* At Aberdeen, we agree and that's why we've been investing globally for over thirty years.

Talk to us today to see how.

If you're interested in exploring the possible benefits of an allocation to global fixed income, here are three things you should know:

  1. Compared to U.S. bonds, we believe the yields available on global bonds - particularly emerging markets - remain attractive. While this higher yield is compensation for the additional perceived credit risk in these markets, default rates are surprisingly low thanks to improving fundamentals (i.e. strong corporate balance sheets and good senior management). We would stress, however, that stock selection remains key - especially in today's uncertain environment. First-hand, intensive research is essential to find those bond opportunities whose yield does not reflect their true fundamental quality.

  2. As governments and companies across the world seek to finance their activities, the breadth of bond opportunities is increasing. In particular, emerging markets are becoming a larger component of the global market. As the global hunt for yield continues, we believe demand in these markets looks set to remain very well supported.

  3. Numbers show that international fixed income generally has very low correlation with domestic U.S. fixed income markets. Indeed, throughout the economic and market cycles of the last decade, fixed income returns around the world have differed greatly. We believe diversifying globally may therefore potentially offer investors better risk-adjusted returns than U.S. government or corporate bonds alone can provide.

Why Aberdeen?

We believe our global presence, intensive research and team-based approach make Aberdeen a partner of choice for global fixed income.

Disclosure

1 Barclays as of June 30, 2013

2 Source: Morningstar, Inc.

The Morningstar Rating is calculated for U.S. domiciled funds with at least a three-year history and a large enough category of peers for comparison. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for most investments is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For the 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, respectively, the Aberdeen Total Return Bond Fund was rated 3, 3 and 4 stars among 933, 801 and 575 funds in the Intermediate-Term Bond funds category for the time period 8/31/14.. For the 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, respectively, the Aberdeen Global High Income Fund was rated 4 , 3 and 5 stars among 567, 497 and 345 funds in the High Yield Bond funds category for the time period 8/31/14. Morningstar Ratings are for the share classes cited only; other classes may have different ratings. Please note that some Morningstar proprietary calculations, including the Morningstar Rating, may be calculated based on adjusted historical returns (pre-inception returns). This investment's independent Morningstar Rating metric is compared against the appropriate universe's actual performance breakpoints to determine the extended performance rating.

Business Continuity Management & Disaster Recovery Programs

Investing in mutual funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal. There is no assurance that the investment objective of any fund will be achieved.

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).

The Fund's investments in high-yield bonds and other lower-rated securities will subject the Fund to substantial risk of loss.

Derivatives are speculative and may hurt the Fund's performance. They present the risk of disproportionately increased losses and/or reduced gains when the financial asset or measure to which the derivative is linked changes in unexpected ways.

Municipal securities can be affected by adverse tax, legislative or political changes and the financial condition of the issuers of municipal securities.

Investments in asset backed and mortgage backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware which include those associated with fixed income securities, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments.

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. Concentrating investments in a particular region subjects the portfolio to more volatility and greater risk of loss than geographically diverse investments.

Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.

Alpha is a measure of performance on a risk-adjusted basis.
