We analyze ESG risks and opportunities in every company we cover. On-desk regional ESG specialists, supported by abrdn’s central ESG team, provide insight on ESG themes and sectors in local markets.

Through constructive engagement, including voting, all our EM professionals look to drive positive corporate change. We believe this helps us deliver EM solutions that target long-term positive outcomes for investors, society, and the planet.


Our team-based, collaborative approach ensures insights and analysis are continuously shared, interrogated, and debated. In our view, this allows us to invest with conviction in the best long-term investment ideas we can find in these complex, diverse, and fast-moving markets.

Through forward-looking, active investment, we seek to drive positive change and put clients at the heart of some of the most compelling opportunities emerging markets offer.
