Please be aware of scams that can affect investors.
The Company currently conducts its affairs so that securities issued by Shires Income 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 Shires Income 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”.

Investment trusts are public limited companies traded on the London Stock Exchange and have a history stretching back to the 1880s. Investment trusts are created with the sole purpose of generating returns for their shareholders by investing in shares and other securities. By bringing together a professionally-managed and diversified investment portfolio, investment trusts have long been considered one of the simplest ways to share in the growth potential of the stockmarket.
An Aberdeen Investment Trust will offer you access to the skills and resources of professional fund managers. Plus a clear investment strategy that is adhered to, year after year, so you can see how it can fit with your plans and goals.
We aim to achieve superior investment performance primarily through first hand research of companies themselves, and then through the active management of portfolios. Our house style, whilst constantly seeking new opportunities, is to focus on companies that we understand well and that offer good value. But getting on to our ‘buy list’ takes some doing: we don’t commit a penny until a company has passed through a rigorous assessment process.
