Morningstar analysts have downgraded their Gold ratings on Aberdeen's Asia Pacific and Emerging Markets equity funds. Although the research team reiterates that these funds remain among the best offerings in their respective areas of investment, they add that they have slightly more conviction in some of the competitor funds in the market.

"The well-resourced and long-tenured team and a consistent investment process are some of these funds' strengths," says Grant Kennaway, a member of the Morningstar Manager Research team. "Despite some recent headwinds in performance, we remain convinced that the strategy will outperform through the cycle."
