Invested in creating more.

More opportunity. More possibility. More impact.

  • Powering possibility

    At abrdn we believe in the power of investing to create more. More security 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.

  • Looking 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 forward-looking insight and analysis we assess the future of markets, industries and companies – and the changing needs of investors themselves.

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

  • Connecting thinking

    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, create deep connectivity – and work across traditional investment boundaries to deliver the solutions and support to help every client achieve more every day.

At abrdn we connect one of the world’s broadest ranges of investment capabilities with deeper insights and diverse perspectives. It’s what we call extraordinary connections, a more progressive way of investing that rests on three key principles:

  • Team-based insight-sharing and decision-making can deliver better and more reliable investment outcomes.
  • There’s no substitute for first-hand fundamental research.
  • A strong focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations can enhance long-term returns and reduce risk.

With more than 1,000* investment professionals worldwide, our investment capabilities are genuinely global – spanning a broad range of markets, asset classes and strategies.

We combine our deep knowledge of local markets with the power of coordinated global oversight to drive better investment outcomes for you.
