Invested in creating more.

More opportunity. More possibility. More impact.

Powering change

At abrdn we believe in the power of investing to create more choice. More choice and more performance possibility for our clients. And more positive impact for society and our planet.

That’s why we use our worldwide investment expertise and resources to seek out the best investment opportunities globally. And ensure that many of the assets we hold can deliver real social and environmental benefits.

Thinking ahead

The future is never certain. We look to help clients navigate whatever’s ahead – and transform a world of constant change into a universe of investment potential.

Through multi-layered research, insights and analysis we assess the future of markets, industries and companies – and identify change.

This helps us determine where to invest – and how and where we need to innovate to better serve our clients.

Connecting perspectives

Today, there is no single source of the truth. So we embrace diversity of investment thought, experience, skills and technology to strive for the best investment ideas – and the best client outcomes.

As global teams we pool our collective insights, while breaking down internal boundaries between regions, asset classes and specialisms to leverage deep local insight and create deep connectivity to deliver the solutions and support to help every client achieve more every day.
