Please be aware of scams that can affect investors.
The Company currently conducts its affairs so that securities issued by Aberdeen Smaller Companies High Income Trust PLC can be recommended by financial advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream pooled investment products (NMPIs) and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
The Company’s securities are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are securities in an investment trust.
The Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (“AIFMD”) requires Aberdeen Fund Managers Limited, as the alternative investment fund manager of Aberdeen Smaller Companies High Income Trust PLC, to make available to investors certain information prior to such investors’ investment in the Company.
The AIFMD is intended to offer increased protection to investors in investment products that do not fall under the existing European Union regime for regulation of investment products known as “UCITS”.
