Aberdeen Emerging Markets Equity

Long-term focused investors will find Aberdeen Emerging Markets an excellent fit. A large, well-resourced investment team is led by Devan Kaloo. An individual we hold in high regard, Kaloo has been at the firm since 2000 and, like a number of his colleagues, has spent the majority of his investment career at the firm.

Kaloo also acts as global head of equities, a role he took on in July 2015 when the strategy’s long-time steward Hugh Young moved to a broader role within the firm. This should serve as part of the natural succession planning within the firm, and it is a logical decision in our eyes. Able support comes from Joanne Irvine, head of emerging markets ex Asia. The broader team is flat structured with staffers seen as generalists rather than having sector responsibilities, helping to minimise key-person risk.
