Aberdeen Closed-End Funds

Aberdeen’s closed-end funds provide access to the world’s emerging markets, specific regions, or particular countries. Each fund benefits from Aberdeen’s diligent company research process and disciplined fund construction.

Disclosure: Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.<br />

<br />

International investing entails special risk considerations, including currency fluctuations, lower liquidity, economic and political risks, and differences in accounting methods; these risks are generally heightened for emerging market investments. Equity stocks of small-cap companies carry greater risk, and more volatility than equity stocks of larger, more established companies. There are also risks associated with investing in a single country or single region fund.<br />

<br />

Fixed income securities are subject to certain risks including, but not limited to: interest rate (changes in interest rates may cause a decline in the market value of an investment), credit (changes in the financial condition of the issuer, borrower, counterparty, or underlying collateral), prepayment (debt issuers may repay or refinance their loans or obligations earlier than anticipated), and extension (principal repayments may not occur as quickly as anticipated, causing the expected maturity of a security to increase).<br />

Closed-end funds are traded on the secondary market through one of the stock exchanges. The Fund’s investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net asset value (NAV) of the fund’s portfolio. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Past performance does not guarantee future results.<br />
