With 31 offices across 23 countries, Aberdeen Asset Management is a truly transnational company. The organisation is making strides, despite the difficult conditions in international investment markets, and continuing to provide returns and profits.
Aberdeen Asset Management is a global investment management group that handles assets for institutional and retail clients from all corners of the globe. Managing Director for Aberdeen Australia Brett Jollie discusses the companys present and future challenges in light of a changing investment landscape and mounting investor uncertainty.
"You just have to look at the world today. Against an uncertain macroeconomic backdrop – particularly in Europe, North America and China – it can seem like a scary place. That has a flow-on effect in Australia – not just to our economy and investment markets but also on investors' confidence. Obviously this impacts our business. We need to ensure that we communicate clearly with our clients about developments in the market and how these affect their investments with us and, more strategically, as a business we need to make sure we continue to offer relevant investment solutions to meet client needs".
