Aberdeen Asset Management PLC
Aberdeen Asset Management PLC is an international investment management group, managing assets for both institutions and private individuals from offices around the world. Its mission is to deliver superior fund performance across diverse asset classes in which it believe it has a sustainable competitive edge.
Listed on the London stock exchange, Aberdeen manage currency and fixed income and equities (quoted and private) in segregated, closed and open-ended pooled structures. Aberdeen also run a sizeable European property business.
Over two decades Aberdeen have expanded through a combination of organic growth and acquisition, first in the UK, then by seeking selectively to manage and (or) market funds in countries in which Aberdeen already invest.
Aberdeen operate flat management structures to facilitate local decision-making, underpinned by clear lines of control and central reporting. A central executive committee consisting of the heads of all the main business lines reports to the board of directors.
Aberdeen's house style is fundamental and process-driven. Active management is the bedrock of equity process; a similar approach characterises currency and fixed income management, with alpha generated by identifying market inefficiencies. In property, the focus is on high risk adjusted returns through advanced portfolio modelling and, again, active management.
Aberdeen prides on original thinking and research. Aberdeen also believe strongly in portfolio transparency. Implicit in our style is a rejection of commoditised products and closet indexing; Aberdeen's business therefore stands or falls on whether they can genuinely add value to client wealth. Aberdeen operate as an independent company, free of the conflicts of interest that can affect integrated financial groups. Although Aberdeen is publicly quoted, management and staff are significant owners of the business. Fund management is all that Aberdeen do. Aberdeen has distinctive CURRENCY & FIXED INCOME, EQUITY and PROPERTY processes.
CURRENCY & FIXED INCOME
The Aberdeen currency and fixed income process dates back to the late 1980s. The process is based on the following core values: a focus on proprietary research, identifying investment opportunities with attractive risk-reward characteristics, combining multiple non-correlated investment decisions with risk monitoring, and management & control at all stages of the investment process. Aberdeen's global client base invests in a range of local, global and specialist currency and fixed income and multi-alpha strategies.
The Aberdeen equity process dates from the early 1990s. The process is continuously evolving but its central tenets are an emphasis on original research, the identification of businesses that they can understand and the elimination of downside risks through price disciplines. While it originated in Asia, Aberdeen approach works equally in developed markets, since fundamentals drive returns over the longterm.
Aberdeen’s approach to property investments is to generate superior returns to investors through better understanding of the dynamics of property markets and realise the potential of individual property assets. A structured investment management process, underpinned by best-in-class research of the European property markets, has delivered consistent outperformance tailor made for clients through a comprehensive range of investment vehicles and mandates.
