Aberdeen Private Equity

Why Aberdeen?

We share the hallmarks of other competencies within the Aberdeen Asset Management Group.

  • Our culture: in an often complex industry, we have built our business based on simplicity and straight-talking; we value such openness to our clients and each other
  • First-hand sourcing and research: in our experience, the greatest information advantage comes from being close to the territories in which we invest; we do our own homework
  • Breadth of expertise: as we are a full-service asset manager, we are ready to harness all asset classes to create the optimal solutions for our clients
  • Focus on value: we look to deliver demonstrable value – be that a specific return, outperforming an index or achieving returns at lower risk
  • Long-term view: while always retaining the flexibility to be tactical, we take a long-term view of companies, markets and economic trends
