Aberdeen Asset Management's (AAMI) provides clients with discretionary and non-discretionary asset management and related services across a broad range of investment strategies and asset classes.

AAMI also offers an alternatives platform, which encompasses multi-manager research, selection and portfolio management for hedge-fund strategies, private equity and debt, property and other real asset investments, along with direct investments in infrastructure projects. In addition, AAMI offers an Asset Manager Minority Investments strategy, which is a direct private equity strategy with a focus on acquiring minority equity interests in alternative asset managers. This team operates as Bonaccord Capital Partners. AAMI may serve as a manager-of-managers, hiring sub-advisors to provide day-today securities selection. AAMI's investment expertise is delivered through both segregated and pooled products. The firm offers investment advisory services with regard to investments in both domestic and global securities to a variety of clients, insurance products, and pooled funds, including investment companies registered under the 1940 Act.AAMI believes, given the inefficiency of markets, that competitive long-term returns are best achieved by identifying high quality stocks at attractive valuations and holding them for the long-term. It is also their belief that sound fundamentals drive stock prices over time. The firm employs a fundamental bottom-up investment approach based on a rigorous and disciplined proprietary research effort which originates with direct company due diligence visits. AAMI holds absolute return to be of utmost importance over the long-term and is benchmark-aware, but not benchmark-driven. This benchmark independent approach is based on the belief that indices do not provide meaningful guidance to the prospects of a company or its inherent worth. AAMI does not equate the quality of a company with either market capitalization or index membership. As such, indices do not serve as a starting point for portfolio construction and AAMI is comfortable taking decisive positions away from the benchmark.

The firm specializes in managing portfolios of U.S. and Canadian Small-Cap Equities. They look for companies with strong management with a significant ownership position, several years of consistent growth in revenues and earnings, a clearly defined strategy for long-term growth and conservative accounting methods. VBA also looks for companies with an important franchise, a significant market share, a global reach and a unique product or service. Companies should be gaining market share in a fragmented industry. Additional financial criteria include: projected long-term EPS growth greater than 15%, high return on equity, a strong balance sheet, adequate size and strong cash flow generation. While the firm generally prefers to invest in non-cyclical industries, they may also consider investments in companies that can grow their asset base in the resource and cyclical sectors and generate a reasonable return on invested capital and shareholders' equity.VBA's research process focuses on fundamental analysis. Part of their research effort considers the economic cycle and the identification of the secular trends of the future. Most of their efforts center on the identification and analysis of individual companies that are prepared for the economic and secular trends of the future.
