At abrdn, our vision is to invest responsibly for a better future. Our Global Consultant Relations team work with investment consultants globally and in their local markets to provide access to our investment expertise, valuable market insights, thought leadership, research and analysis.

Our breadth of investment capabilities is extensive and this allows us to work with consultants to understand their clients’ requirements and ensure we develop and deliver relevant and innovative investment products and solutions.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations have been an integral part of our decision-making process for almost 30 years.

By putting ESG factors at the heart of our investment process, we believe we can generate better outcomes for consultants and their clients.

Clients’ objectives can rarely be met by investing in a single asset class. Instead, a portfolio that actively invests across multiple asset classes has more sources of potential return, can better adapt to changing market conditions and can diversify portfolio risk for a better overall experience.

As a global asset manager with expertise across all key asset classes we bring together all our capabilities to create robust multi-asset strategies that can target specific client goals.
