Aberdeen Standard Investments believes that superior risk-adjusted returns can be achieved from multi-asset investing. Over the longer term, returns for all asset classes are driven by economic fundamentals and by identifying inefficiencies in valuations between markets. Value can be added through dynamic allocations to different assets and markets. We hold absolute returns to be more important over the longer term than those relative to a benchmark or index and we are comfortable taking decisive positions away from a benchmark.
This philosophy extends to asset classes themselves, where we do not equate risk with divergence from the benchmark, but with the absolute notion of investing in a poor quality security or fund. This multi-asset investment process is underpinned by our convictions from proprietary analysis and comparative research at a global level.
