ASI in Middle-East & Africa

We have been active in the Middle East region for over 20 years. In 2016, we opened an office in the UAE, where we think business opportunities within the asset management industry have been growing.

Our office is located in Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international finance centre of Abu Dhabi. Several financial companies, including both multi-national and smaller firms specialising in financial services and fin-tech, have also chosen ADGM as domicile. However, Aberdeen Standard Investments is one of the few international asset managers present in ADGM today as we strongly believe that ADGM is transforming into a leading internationally recognised financial centre.

Our primary objective is to help investors reach their desired investment goals and broaden their financial horizons. Our full range of investment solutions span equities, multi-asset, fixed income, liquidity, real estate and private markets. Coupled with a range of investment approaches, from quantitatively managed ‘smart beta’ to highly active alpha-seeking strategies.
