  • Risk in the new world | Thinking Aloud
    securities Is currency risk more important than market risk Is market risk more important than political risk And what about specific geographies is China more or less risky than other economies There is no magic formula to measuring or assessing risk So sometimes it can be more beneficial to go back to basics When investing in equities for example risk can take the form of buying a bad company at an unfavorable valuation This is a risk of investing in companies without strong fundamentals which can often occur if investors fail to step back and see the long term big picture Risk is complex because there is no straightforward answer And as much as it is quantitative it can be subjective with its varying definitions from investor to investor So investors may be left asking themselves how to diversify accordingly and maximize rewards making sure that the risk they are taking is in fact bold Whatever the case one thing is true there is no reward without risk and the Romans knew it well Ref 23211 190515 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 risk in the new world Select Article URL Close Long termism Risk Simply put Transparency Related Articles Market madness Einstein s theory of relativity and investing Science shows simple is smart Simplicity movement Growing opportunities in Asian private equity Long termism Risk Simply put Transparency 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 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

  • Wrestling with the Greeks | Thinking Aloud
    Museum s proportions but left the bullet holes and created largely from exposed brick a new shell that happens to look old His work provides a subtle foil to the remarkable Egyptian collection including the famous bust of Nefertiti for which the original was purposely built The project took ten years The overall revamp for Museum Island will take 25 years in all Chipperfield says what struck him was that the debate focused on what the museum stood for rather than his design Negotiation appears to have been hard won but fair It was emblematic of the new Germany through and through the endless committees the appeals to reason and the painful forging of consensus If it also seems a little well Athenian demos in action if you like then another thought follows if Berlin has had this attachment to ancient Greece in building and in thought reaching back to Schinkel what does she really make of the modern Greece Angela Merkel does not want another taxpayer bailout She gives every impression of thinking Athens has brought its problems on itself A politician who reads the popular mood first you search in vain for her soft spot There is another side to the national mood a sorrow bordering on puzzlement How is it that the country which gifted the West its founding civilization and organizing principles can be so careless of its past It is not that Germany could run things better in Greece It is that Germany appreciates Greece or the idea of it more than it may admit High mindedness is unfashionable these days But on Museum Island amid the colonnades and sublime statuary it can be felt as a vital force Ref 23772 060815 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 wrestling with the greeks Select Article URL Close Europe Simply made Related Articles Like the US the UK needs infrastructure capital Lesson from Germany the value of hybrid property Fighting off China s cold ECB action kitchen sink or leaky tap for hedge funds Creating value through effective stewardship Europe 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

  • Paid to be paranoid | Thinking Aloud
    planning to enter the asset management industry in 2016 The truth is that you could swap asset management for any industry and it would strike fear into the heart of that industry s CEOs such is the reputation of Apple as a disruptive force One of the reasons Aberdeen Asset Management has been in our opinion successful is that we ve changed with the times But we are a large incumbent in our sector that makes us ripe for disruption so we re paying a lot of attention to the risk I m not arrogant or complacent enough to think that we can rest on our laurels for a second I m not arrogant or complacent enough to think that we can rest on our laurels for a second I m flying to the West Coast of America to meet with various technology companies to learn about their businesses As I have mentioned before we have established an Innovation Committee to look at ways we can improve the way we work internally and externally What is certain is the way we do business and interact with clients in ten years will be completely different than how we work today As the late Apple co founder Steve Jobs once said Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower I want my business to be a leader but that means I need to be constantly alert to what s around the corner Ref 23211 230715 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 paid to be paranoid Select Article URL Close Transparency Related Articles Other people s money Do you see what I see ESG comes to fixed income Sherlock Holmes and the market conundrum Risk in the new world 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

  • Resisting short-term temptations | Thinking Aloud
    to invest Instead of worrying about short term price movements or the temporary gain or loss of capital we re far more concerned about the possibility of a permanent loss of capital which is all about assessing a company s long term business prospects Therefore long termism lies at the heart of our investment thinking Our idea of the perfect company is one whose shares you never need to sell because earnings will rise 10 to 15 every year and where the share price accurately reflects this growth When researchers conducted follow up studies of the original marshmallow test subjects some two decades later they found that those children who managed to delay gratification the longest had gone on to do better at school secured better jobs and made more money Intuitively this makes complete sense to us Success in life like investing requires many qualities But conviction and discipline must rank near the top Whether we re talking about getting an additional sweet or building a nest egg in a sustainable manner it pays to think long term Ref 23211 150715 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 resisting short term temptations Select Article URL Close Long termism Simply put Related Articles Market madness Einstein s theory of relativity and investing Science shows simple is smart Simplicity movement Growing opportunities in Asian private equity Long termism Simply put 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 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

  • The hole-in-ones of investing | Thinking Aloud
    one barely tells the story of a golfer The same way that one bad month in the markets or one bad year in performance can hardly tell the story of investing The markets are unpredictable and a portfolio that provided substantial income one year may not continue to do so in the next For this reason both investors and asset managers are on the same eternal quest as golfers for consistency Both investors and asset managers are on the same eternal quest as golfers for consistency Consistent investment performance is a much better tell of an investor s or asset manager s true ability The real way to master investing like golf is through patience and time Ref 23211 100715 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 the hole in ones of investing Select Article URL Close Simply put Sponsorship Related Articles Market madness Science shows simple is smart Simplicity movement Beauty and the brain why we love Beethoven How giving has become a core business Simply put Sponsorship 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 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 may differ materially This information does not provide financial or investment advice and does not take into account the particular financial circumstances of individual investors Before investing investors should seek their own professional advice Neither Aberdeen nor any of its employees associated group companies or agents has given any consideration to nor have they

  • Aberdeen: 2015 trip to Malawi | Thinking Aloud
    challenges remain The village will have a primary school for six to nine year olds but that doesn t guarantee a continuing education by any means Secondary schools are sparse in Malawi a key reason for many young boys and girls marrying early and taking on the traditional household roles Job opportunities are equally as scant and with very little opportunity for higher education it is no surprise these children grow up in much the same way as their parents and grandparents The reality is that life is hard and there are numerous challenges to overcome at both a local and national level before villages such as Kamowatimwa can lift themselves out of poverty Nonetheless good humor and a feeling of community amongst the excitement for the school were the threads that tied the trip together There was plenty to laugh about our ridiculous dusty appearances and an interesting lingering aroma on the team bus after a week of sweaty work and infrequent washes the oversharing of the hole in the ground toilet experiences and most of all the fun and games with our host families and the village as a whole We admired their sense of community Almost by accident we started as a diverse group of individuals and left as a close knit team of friends with our own sense of belonging That unexpected element was one of the best things about the experience and what made it different Those are the reasons people always say trips like this are life changing It would be fantastic to bring some of those positives to our work and our lives That would be a true tribute to Andrew and Toby Ref 23211 010715 3 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 aberdeen 2015 trip to malawi Select Article URL Close Sponsorship Related Articles How giving has become a core business Tackling education inequality in Northern Ghana The hole in ones of investing Sponsorship 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

  • Paradox for emerging market positivity | Thinking Aloud
    performance Forecasts for earnings and revenue growth have faced downward revisions for 2016 across Europe the U S and emerging markets There s also an increasing pessimism among investors But it s important to distinguish what s happening in emerging markets from the rest of the world Emerging markets earnings growth was around 3 in 2015 in U S dollar terms but that figure doesn t accurately represent the entire emerging market spectrum If you strip out resource companies and look at earnings in local currency terms rather than in U S dollars the 2015 figure is actually likely to come in at over 10 And the trend is one of improvement Revenue growth is forecast at over 6 this coming year Factor in some operating leverage on expected cost control across our universe and earnings growth could possibly break the 10 mark in 2016 as well Chart 3 EM Revenue Growth Source UBS January 2016 For illustrative purposes only Chart 4 EM Earnings Growth Source UBS January 2016 For illustrative purposes only It would be naïve to downplay the severity of the headwinds facing emerging markets Yet it s equally detrimental to get caught up in the negativity and miss the broader more balanced picture Yes there are various problems in China but the country has various strengths in its favor too such as a very high savings rate and low levels of household debt It would be naïve to downplay the severity of the headwinds facing emerging markets Monetary policy may have weighed down on emerging market currencies but this has encouraged much needed adjustments in the trade accounts of many emerging countries And finally earnings are far more encouraging than they seem at first glance As veteran emerging market investors we ve been here many times before and take comfort in doing our extensive country and company first hand research But perhaps most importantly of all we ve learnt not to lose sight of the need for having a long term view Forecasts are offered as opinion and are not reflective of potential performance are not guaranteed and actual events or results may differ materially Important Information Foreign securities are more volatile harder to price and less liquid than U S securities They are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards and political and economic risks These risks are enhanced in emerging markets countries Ref 23211 050416 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 Asia ex Japan Central banking Currencies Developed Developing Emerging Markets Equities Global Interest rates Monetary policy Related Articles Japan why faltering reforms shouldn t hide corporate achievements EM corporate bonds what happened to the apocalypse Asian property seeking excitement without danger Fighting off China s cold ECB action kitchen sink or leaky tap for hedge funds Asia ex Japan Central banking Currencies Developed Developing Emerging Markets Equities Global Interest rates Monetary policy
