Asset management is our business
Who we are
Aberdeen Asset Management is a global asset manager and a FTSE 100 company. We are based in 25 countries with 33 offices, more than 850 investment professionals and around 2,700 staff overall. Our assets under management were £323.3bn as at 31 December 2014.
As a pure asset manager, without the distractions of other financial services activities, we are able to concentrate all our resources on our core business. We believe this is key to our performance. Assets are only managed for third parties, not our own balance sheet, which helps reduce conflicts of interest.
We dislike unnecessary obscurity and complexity so our investment processes strive to be simple and clear. We aim to seek out investments that display those qualities too. Finally, we focus on taking a long-term view of our investments.
What we do
Our business is predominantly the active management of financial assets, using first-hand research to make our investment decisions.
Active investment spans equities, fixed income securities and property, sharing resources and a common investment approach.
We have also developed a solutions business that can blend our abilities across different asset classes to provide tailored investment outcomes to meet specific client needs. This can incorporate skills in both quantitative equities and alternatives.
Our investment expertise is delivered through both segregated and pooled products – allowing us to serve a range of clients from institutions to private investors.
