We are pleased to announce that on August 31, 2015, FLAG Capital Management, a leading provider of private equity and real asset solutions, has been acquired by Aberdeen Asset Management Inc.

Aberdeen Asset Management PLC is a global asset management firm, drawing on more than 2,000 staff, across 37 offices in 26 countries, and managing more than $483 billion, as of June 30, 2015.

Similar to FLAG’s investment process, we champion original thinking and base decisions on proprietary research and analysis. Aberdeen’s investment teams are located in the market or region in which they invest, delivering local insight backed by our global knowledge.

What does the combination of FLAG and Aberdeen bring to you?

Aberdeen has traditionally specialized in long-only equity, fixed income and multi-asset solutions; FLAG specializes in venture, small- to mid-cap private equity capital, and real assets in the U.S., and private equity in the Asia-Pacific region.

FLAG’s specialization in these strategies boosts Aberdeen’s pan-alternatives capabilities, allowing us to provide investors with a full range of private market solutions.

Aberdeen extends a warm welcome to FLAG clients and our new colleagues. Together, we look forward to helping you reach your investment objectives and deliver solutions to meet your needs.
