Extraordinary Connections

More investment strategies. One objective. Yours.

At Aberdeen Standard Investments we connect one of the world’s broadest ranges of investment capabilities with deeper insights and diverse perspectives. It’s what we call extraordinary connections, a more progressive way of investing that rests on three key principles:

  • Team-based insight-sharing and decision-making can deliver better and more reliable investment outcomes.
  • There’s no substitute for first-hand fundamental research.
  • A strong focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations can enhance long-term returns and reduce risk.

With more than 1,000* investment professionals worldwide, our investment capabilities are genuinely global – spanning a broad range of markets, asset classes and strategies.

We combine our deep knowledge of local markets with the power of coordinated global oversight to drive better investment outcomes for you.
