Martin Gilbert, chief executive of Aberdeen, said: “Aberdeen continues to make progress in what have been volatile market conditions. Flows into higher margin products have more than offset redemptions in terms of revenue ensuring profit, cashflow and margins remain strong.
“The investment environment is likely to be turbulent for at least the next few months. However, market volatility also
creates opportunities particularly for long-term investors with a fundamental approach like Aberdeen.”
