A focus on quality

In this podcast, we focus on 'quality' companies.

It has long been part of the Aberdeen Standard Investments philosophy that returns from 'quality' companies are more resilient over the long-term. We believe quality becomes particularly important in difficult environments, such as those we find ourselves in in today.

In this podcast, we are joined by Ben Ritchie, co-manager of Dunedin Income Growth Investment Trust, Bruce Stout, manager of Murray International Trust and Hugh Young, manager of Aberdeen Standard Asia Focus.

We discuss the theme of 'quality' - why it has formed a core of our investment philosophy and what that looks like in practice.

Investing for income

In this podcast Ben Ritchie, co-manager of Dunedin Income Growth Investment Trust, joins Iain Pyle, manager of Shires Income and Fran Radano, manager of the North American Income Trust. The environment for income-seekers was already tough, thanks to more than a decade of low rates. However, policymakers' response to the coronavirus has seen rates pushed lower still, at a time when a number of high profile companies have been forced to cut their dividends. Today we're discussing the challenges for those seeking an income from their investments.
