  • Market madness | Thinking Aloud
    are more teams to pick from in the pool of global assets and decisions are rarely made by one person alone Couple this with greater uncertainty of market influences That of course doesn t mean investors have or will give up Low odds didn t stop mathematicians and sports forecasters from trying to formulate the perfect bracket One day their predictions may make it through the hoop Similarly investors are unlikely to stop in their quest for the right strategies to a high caliber portfolio To the benefit of investors whereas only one team can win the men s college basketball trophy several assets can contribute to returns in a portfolio Simultaneously there are investment managers with a global team presence and that can make a difference when looking for assets around the world After all unique plays like alley oops can t happen on a one man team Such odds make investing in global markets a bit more bearable Except in the case of what our central banks will do next As much as we want to predict what they have lined up we are better off preparing ourselves rather than trying to read their minds That s another type of madness for another day and odds that may require much more than 18 zeros Ref 23211 150316 2 Social media Download share or print this page Copy link Email link Print this page Share on twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on Google Share on Facebook Copy URL http www aberdeen asset ca en thinkingaloudus culture and inspiration market madness Select Article URL Close Behavioural finance Long termism Simply put Related Articles Einstein s theory of relativity and investing Science shows simple is smart Simplicity movement Growing opportunities in Asian private equity A conscious re coupling of monetary and fiscal policy Behavioural finance Long termism Simply put Related Links Contact Us Learn more about Aberdeen This Content Component encountered an error Send us feedback First Name Last Name Email Address Comments Thinking aloud Internal Links About Thinking aloud Privacy and Cookies Policy Accessibility Help Keep in touch twitter LinkedIn google facebook More about Aberdeen Asset About Aberdeen Asset Management Aberdeen Asset Management Copyright 2015 IMPORTANT INFORMATION PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT AN INDICATION OF FUTURE RESULTS The views and opinions expressed are provided for general information only and do not constitute specific tax legal or investment advice to or recommendations for any person We suggest that you consult your financial or tax advisor accountant or attorney with regard to your specific situation The details contained here are for information purposes only and should not be considered as an offer or solicitation to deal in any of the investments mentioned herein Aberdeen Asset Management AAM does not warrant the accuracy adequacy or completeness of the information contained herein and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in such information and materials Any research or analysis used in the preparation of the information has been procured by Aberdeen for its own use

  • Simplicity movement | Thinking Aloud
    is much that great art and design can teach all of us about simplicity Among the most famous gardens in the world are the minimalist spaces found in the great Japanese Zen temples including the rock garden in Ryouanji Kyoto We believe design rarely comes much simpler than that After all that is the point of the Zen influence By examining pared down works of art we in the asset management industry can learn a thing or two about paring down the way we communicate the markets to investors While the markets themselves may be complicated the communication doesn t have to be Simple design and simple text ultimately pays off The success of Apple is just one example Important Information Companies mentioned for illustrative purposes only and should not be taken as a recommendation to buy or sell any security It should not be assumed that recommendations made in the future will be profitable or will equal the performance of the securities in this list Stapleton Collection Corbis Ref 23211 020216 1 Social media Download share or print this page Copy link Email link Print this page Share on twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on Google Share on Facebook Copy URL http www aberdeen asset ca en thinkingaloudus culture and inspiration simplicity movement Select Article URL Close Communication Simplicity Simply put Related Articles Market madness The sun a stick and a well for a scientific breakthrough Science shows simple is smart Other people s money Do you see what I see Communication Simplicity Simply put Related Links Contact Us Learn more about Aberdeen This Content Component encountered an error Send us feedback First Name Last Name Email Address Comments Thinking aloud Internal Links About Thinking aloud Privacy and Cookies Policy Accessibility Help Keep in touch twitter LinkedIn google facebook More about Aberdeen Asset About Aberdeen Asset Management Aberdeen Asset Management Copyright 2015 IMPORTANT INFORMATION PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT AN INDICATION OF FUTURE RESULTS The views and opinions expressed are provided for general information only and do not constitute specific tax legal or investment advice to or recommendations for any person We suggest that you consult your financial or tax advisor accountant or attorney with regard to your specific situation The details contained here are for information purposes only and should not be considered as an offer or solicitation to deal in any of the investments mentioned herein Aberdeen Asset Management AAM does not warrant the accuracy adequacy or completeness of the information contained herein and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in such information and materials Any research or analysis used in the preparation of the information has been procured by Aberdeen for its own use and may have been acted on for its own purpose Some of the information may contain projections or other forward looking statements regarding future events or future financial performance of countries markets or companies These statements are only predictions opinions or estimates made on a general basis and actual events or results

  • Other people’s money | Thinking Aloud
    the challenges financial firms face may require drastic solutions For example breaking up large financial conglomerates and replacing them with focused institutions would better meet the needs of particular users Part of this would involve forcing banks to separate their investment banking and retail activities This is logical from an investment perspective it is very difficult to make accurate assessments of the standalone value of a bank s investment banking and retail arms Private investors have struggled to evaluate the value they obtain from financial service providers To regain that trust over time the financial industry needs to provide investors with better information and greater transparency For example financial service providers can give full disclosures and explanations of asset management fees This can empower investors to assess how well their investments are performing This can also enable investors to make better decisions about their own money and whether they are investing with the right providers The solutions to these issues may need to be imposed by governments as the entire financial industry is unlikely to undertake such large scale structural reform on its own It would be unfortunate if it took another financial crisis to make these changes happen Ref 23211 211215 1 Social media Download share or print this page Copy link Email link Print this page Share on twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on Google Share on Facebook Copy URL http www aberdeen asset ca en thinkingaloudus culture and inspiration other peoples money Select Article URL Close Global Simplicity Transparency Related Articles Paradox for emerging market positivity Creating value through effective stewardship Words are wind in bond markets On Europe s home ground The sun a stick and a well for a scientific breakthrough Global Simplicity Transparency Related Links Contact Us Learn more about Aberdeen This Content Component encountered an error Send us feedback First Name Last Name Email Address Comments Thinking aloud Internal Links About Thinking aloud Privacy and Cookies Policy Accessibility Help Keep in touch twitter LinkedIn google facebook More about Aberdeen Asset About Aberdeen Asset Management Aberdeen Asset Management Copyright 2015 IMPORTANT INFORMATION PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT AN INDICATION OF FUTURE RESULTS The views and opinions expressed are provided for general information only and do not constitute specific tax legal or investment advice to or recommendations for any person We suggest that you consult your financial or tax advisor accountant or attorney with regard to your specific situation The details contained here are for information purposes only and should not be considered as an offer or solicitation to deal in any of the investments mentioned herein Aberdeen Asset Management AAM does not warrant the accuracy adequacy or completeness of the information contained herein and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in such information and materials Any research or analysis used in the preparation of the information has been procured by Aberdeen for its own use and may have been acted on for its own purpose Some of the information may contain projections or other

  • Biology could be simpler than we thought | Thinking Aloud
    Simple solutions This means that we can now predict the error and completion rate of an entire system by looking at a single aggregate parameter The larger and more complex the system gets the more the aggregate behavior is visible Nemenman said The completion time gets simpler and simpler as the system size goes up Nemenman is now building on his research working with Emory theoretical biologist Rustom Antia to apply the findings to immune cells They are particularly interested in the malfunction of the immune receptors involved in most allergic reactions Every time a process is simplified vital research can be done that much quicker We may be able to simplify the model for these immune receptors from about 3 000 steps to three steps Nemenman says You wouldn t need a supercomputer to test different chemical compounds on the receptors because you don t need to simulate every single step just the aggregate This research will save precious time for those investigating biological processes and has vast implications for health research Every time a process is simplified vital research can be done that much quicker Financial institutions especially investment managers should embrace simplicity Our obsession with the principle is therefore unlikely to dissipate anytime soon Credit Science Picture Co Corbis Ref 24533 031115 1 Social media Download share or print this page Copy link Email link Print this page Share on twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on Google Share on Facebook Copy URL http www aberdeen asset ca en thinkingaloudus culture and inspiration biology could be simpler than we thought Select Article URL Close Simplicity Simply being Simply made Related Articles The Last Man on the Moon a cautionary tale The sun a stick and a well for a scientific breakthrough Science shows simple is smart Simplicity movement Other people s money Simplicity Simply being Simply made Related Links Learn more about Aberdeen Contact Us This Content Component encountered an error Send us feedback First Name Last Name Email Address Comments Thinking aloud Internal Links About Thinking aloud Privacy and Cookies Policy Accessibility Help Keep in touch twitter LinkedIn google facebook More about Aberdeen Asset About Aberdeen Asset Management Aberdeen Asset Management Copyright 2015 IMPORTANT INFORMATION PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT AN INDICATION OF FUTURE RESULTS The views and opinions expressed are provided for general information only and do not constitute specific tax legal or investment advice to or recommendations for any person We suggest that you consult your financial or tax advisor accountant or attorney with regard to your specific situation The details contained here are for information purposes only and should not be considered as an offer or solicitation to deal in any of the investments mentioned herein Aberdeen Asset Management AAM does not warrant the accuracy adequacy or completeness of the information contained herein and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in such information and materials Any research or analysis used in the preparation of the information has been procured by Aberdeen for its own
