Capturing the powerful income potential of Latin American equities and bonds.
Aberdeen Latin American Income Fund (ALAI) aims to provide investors with a total return and an above-average yield, primarily through investing in Latin American securities. While the portfolio is constructed without reference to any benchmark, the company measures its performance against a composite index (in sterling terms): 60% MSCI EM Latin America 10/40 Index and 40% JP Morgan Government Bond Index EM Global Diversified (Latin America carve-out).
