Target your outcome
Whether investors are looking for passive exposures, improved sustainable outcomes, or outperformance in a risk-controlled manner, abrdn offers solutions across both listed equities and fixed income. So whatever your investment goals, we aim to have a solution to match them.
Focus on sustainability
At abrdn, we apply active ownership across a number of our funds. We engage with all our active equity holdings and also vote on all our equity holdings.

What we offer

We offer traditional equity and fixed- income indexation strategies across a wide range of global, regional and local markets.
Enhanced indexation
We focus on multiple ‘risk premia,’ such as value, quality and momentum. We target above-benchmark returns in a risk-controlled manner.
Sustainable indexation
We track our own customised equity and fixed- income indices. These aim to deliver improved sustainable outcomes, while retaining the same risk and return profile as their parent indices.
