Aberdeen Asset Management plc Annual Report 2009

Costs expensed following acquisition reduce profit by 63%
UK asset manager Aberdeen Asset Management recognises migration and transitional costs that reduce its pre-tax profit by 63%, but falls short of IFRS by not disclosing the nature of goodwill acquired, as a report criticises the level of disclosure on material acquisitions in the UK.


Board risk procedures reassessed
UK asset manager Aberdeen Asset Management discloses that it intends to set up a dedicated board committee to review and monitor all aspects of risk. This coincides with a recommendation to this effect in the Walker report for major financial institutions.
