With the new rules regarding the "banning" of commission, how do you think this will affect
the asset management company. I really like Aberdeen Asset Managment but I'm concerned about how they plan on marketing their funds now that they cannot "buy" the fund supermarkets. Are they still a good buy?

might mean there are more expenses (in the form of cellphone/social media/tv advertising) allocated on a pro-rata basis across the family of funds from a marketig budget
