The key issue is investing in only securities of good fundamental factors, followed by Aberdeen’s trustworthy management and good understanding in the invested assets.  The goal to generate long-term income to investors is paramount at Aberdeen.

The fund management modality is very important in selecting fund manager to be fit with the investment goal of each investor, further opined Robert.  By scrutinizing whether and how the selected fund management firm has clearly defined their method of fund management, for instance, how to allocate their investment, what kind of company to be invested, what their investment principle is, if it’s for long term or short term, and so on.  However, the bottom line will be, of course, the fund performance itself, under the investment risks, which is the real proof of the fund manager’s caliber.
